A Stolen LifeNot RatedDrama
Classic film fans rejoice: A Stolen Life stars two Bette Davises in one grand, heart-wrenching melodrama. The iconic actress portrays twin sisters Kate and Pat: the first good and the other, if not exactly evil, a vain vixen who's landed the husband (Glenn Ford) Kate wanted. One fateful day a storm comes up while the sisters are boating, Pat drowns and Kate grabs her chance to steal her sister's identity -- and husband. Instead of using makeup or hair tricks to differentiate the twins, Davis relies on something much more effective: acting talent. And viewers will note she actually plays three roles: Kate, Pat and Kate pretending to be Pat. It's a dazzling balancing act -- and Davis puts every step exactly right.
