Hollow Triumph of the Will

When taking the place of your double
First shave the right cheek of its stubble
Then mar your own mug
Like the scar on the lug
But a look in the mirror means trouble!

Paul Henreid finds impersonating his look-alike is a Hollow Triumph (Steve Sekely, 1948), another noir shot by the great John Alton. Aka The Scar and The Man Who Murdered Himself.
