      Steve D Davis's great work makes it really engaging. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/27/24 Full Review Frances H Vwrrw Davis' acting was good, but the movie didn't get into how the life was stolen until after half the movie was past, although you could say that the first part really showed how the evil twin had stolen the meek twin's life first! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/24 Full Review StephenPaul C The greatest 01 hour: and 47 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/07/23 Full Review deke p 1946! VERY interesting premise: Young BETTY DAVIS still adorable, great actress. twin sisters. 1 drowns. Oher takes her identity cuz loves the dead sis's husband. Ending was abrupt, but happily resolves sitch. GLENN FORD. WALTER BRENNAN as usual. CHARLES RUGGLES. BRUCE BENNETT. & DANE whasisame as unbelievably rude artist. Predictable complications ensue. Never heard before saw on THE MOVIE CHANNEL, April 2021. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member A very nice classic Bette Davis movie with a great supporting cast. Well done! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member No way is Dane Clark masculine & sexy enough to play "Karnock." Glenn Ford isn't believable, either. Of course, Bette Davis is fabulous. She's the only reason to watch this movie. Pretty good special effects for 1946. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
