Double Your Honey

When budgets grow out of control
Stop throwing your dough down a hole
Cast an actress as twins
And economy wins
'Cause you pay by the day, not the role.

David Cairns

Bette Davis times two in A Stolen Life (Curtis Bernhardt, 1946). As the copy to the film's posters claim: "Bette Davis is doubly wonderful in her double role!" "Bette plays two roles...Too wonderful for words!"

We're not too far from the day of the digitized double. Just think of the negotiations with the Actor's Guild!
