The original 1946 The Dark Mirror starred Olivia de Havilland as twin sisters, one of whom has committed a murder. Since each twin can provide an alibi for the other, a rumpled detective (Thomas Mitchell) and a handsome shrink (Lew Ayres) are compelled to get to the truth through patience and not a little sneakiness. Dark Mirror was remade as a TV movie in 1984, this time with Jane Seymour in the 'leads' and Vincent Gardenia as the detective. Seymour has a field day alternating between the good and bad twin; would that the audience was having as much fun.

German exile Robert Siodmak directs this classic film noir. A man is found with a knife in his back, and the detective (Thomas Mitchell) in charge of the murder enquiry narrows his list of suspects down to two identical sisters (both played by Olivia de Havilland). In trademark noir fashion, a psychologist (Lew Ayres) is enlisted to help sort good sister from bad, and a psychotic tale of sibling rivalry unfolds.
