The plot consists of a murder that seems to point to one of the twins - one naive and one cunning. THe final outcome iis telegraphed quite early (for a contemporary audience), but it is nevertheless fun to watch the story as it unfolds to its obvious conclusion. This little B-movie gets the usual deft direction by noir expert, Robert Siodmak. Thomas Mitchell plays the detective and Lew Ayres a psychiatrist in love with one of the sisters.. The Blu-Ray version by Olive Films is tack sharp and with excellent B&W contrast. THis is a must for lover of film noir, 40's B&W melodramas, Siodmak and DeHavilland fans, in other words, a must.
The Olive DVD is a nicely rendered B&W transfer in its appropriate 1.33 aspect ratio
It is also a splendid job by Robert Siodmak. Imagine, he also made the superb THE KILLERS in the same year. There is only a single scene, where Terry and Ruth are speaking face to face, that looks the slightest bit artificial: the rest is an amazing technical achievement by any standard.
The Oscar nominated story (Vladimir Pozner), screenwriting (Nunnally Johnson), music (Dimitri Tiomkin) and cinematography (Milton Krasner) are all very fine. And when you find that Olivia de Havilland is supported by the likes of Lew Ayres and Thomas Mitchell; there's nothing left but to sit back and enjoy.
This is definitely a film that deserves a DVD/Blu-ray release.
