Dead Ringer (Henreid, 1964): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 5.45pm

This 35mm presentation, part of the Bette Davis BFI Southbank season, is also being screened on August 30th. You can find the full details here.

BFI Southbank introduction:
A pair of estranged identical twins reunite after 18 years apart, having both fallen out over the same man. One is wealthy and the other is financially struggling, but any hope of a reconciliation is thwarted when buried secrets begin to emerge. Paul Henreid, Davis’ co-star from Now, Voyager, directs her in this crime drama, which sees Davis on top form playing twin sisters for the second time in her career (following A Stolen Life).

Here (and above) is the trailer.
