THE DARK MIRROR
(1948, Universal. 85 min. NOT ON DVD!)
Witnesses place Ruth Collins (Olivia de Havilland) at the scene of a grisly murder. When it's discovered she has a twin, Dr. Elliot (Lew Ayres) is brought in to psychologically evaluate them both. When the doc falls for one of them, the other becomes murderously jealous. Noir master Robert Siodmak deftly directs this Oscar-nominated original story, guiding de Havilland through two sensational performances, as the sisters both sweet and sinister.
(1947, RKO [Warner Bros.] 93 min.)
A museum curator (Pat O'Brien) survives a massive train wreck, but wakes up an amnesiac. It gets worse. . . . Seems the accident never happened, and now everyone is convinced he's losing his mind. Frederic Brown's ingenious short story "Madman's Holiday" is inventively realized by Irving Reis and enacted by a top-flight cast, including suave, sinister Herbert Marshall and sartorially splendid Claire Trevor.
