Clever and well acted horror with Bette Davis playing the roles of Dead Ringer sisters. Imitated since many times, it has a Hitchockian sense of inevitability as Davis' conniving is unravelled in short order by the maid, her twin sister's lover and the policeman. Lots of delicious irony,and the acting is first rate- an excellent morality tale. Davis fans (without spoiling it) will love the hairbrush scene. The acting of Marlden is first rate and there are deliciously camp cameo roles from the supporting cast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great suspense movie from the 60s. 23 Mar 2008
By FAMOUS NAME VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
One of two films Davis made where she played duel roles as twins - the other being less memorable.

Bette Davis stars alongside Karl Malden here, and despite the film's darker and more 'thriller' aspect, does have some very sentimental and moving moments between Malden and Davis.

This movie is enthralling from the outset and despite its length, does not appear over long. The story is 'classic' super-scenario fiction style, but is one of those situations, that could it happen in real life, people would probably behave in very much the same way; knowing - yet not really doing anything about it or telling anyone because of their doubts or suspicions seeming slightly crazy, and is probably why someone could get away with the plot!

This is great to the end, has some great camera trickery and illusions, and does not involve what could have been a drawn out and much-boring court scene that would have ruined the whole thing.

Five Stars!

N. B. Though this is listed as a Region '1' DVD format, for some reason, this does play on a Region '2' Player!

4.0 out of 5 stars "But I am Margaret De Lorca!" 5 Aug 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
By the time 1964 came around Bette Davis was having career resurgence. Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? was a huge hit for her and Joan Crawford; therefore, it was only logical that both actresses would be offered a variety of quasi horror and gothic-like roles. While Dead Ringer isn't really a horror film, it certainly has enough spooky and unnerving elements to involve the viewer and create an atmosphere of foreboding.
Is Dead Ringer a piece of B grade junk designed as a vehicle for a fading star's last gasp at glory? Or is it a cleverly wrought psychological thriller, made redeemable by the presence of a true star and great actress? Well, the answer is probably a bit both - theres no doubt that movie has elements of a second rate melodromatic thriller, but the film is also surprisingly tense and in the end provides a perfect showcase for the glamorous Ms. Davis to do what she does best.
Dead ringer is ultimately a campy gothic thriller about estranged twin sisters Margaret and Edith (Davis, playing both roles). The film begins with a funeral for Margaret's husband who has just died of heart failure. When the wealthy Margaret invites Edith back to her mansion in Westwood it is soon revealed that the insensitive, social-climbing Margaret actually stole Edith's insanely rich beau away from her and has since been living the high-life while Edith struggles to keep her run-down nightclub afloat.
With her rent three months in arrears and frantic for money, Edith hatches a desperate plan to murder her own sister by making it look like suicide.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Blu Ray, 3 Mar 2013
By Adrian Drew TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
This transfer of not one of Bette Davis' best - but enjoyable enough - movies, is quite strong if not in the same league as the new blu ray of "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane".

The definition is quite good although the contrast and black levels don't reach the standards of the finest blu ray transfers.

The audio is adequate - if a little underpowered - but the extras are very enjoyable - well for fans at least.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bette Davies Film 15 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Saw this DVD on line and thought 'Why not?'
I am a Bette Davies fan and have never heard if this film... never seen it.
It is in the category of her later work very similar in shock value to Baby Jane etc but with Bette playing two roles as twin sisters. All in all an enjoyable romp an am most pleased I decided to own it.

Only after I ordered it did I panic as I thought Region 1? Don't you need a special player? But I needn't've worried as it plays absolutely fine.
Service, delivery all excellent. Thank you
