They actually used real twins for this one....
9 July 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

During the mid-1930s, Buster Keaton left MGM and went to Educational Pictures where he starred in 17 decent but not particularly distinguished short films. Most were a bit better than the stuff he'd done at MGM but the films lack to crazy originality of Keaton's silent work. For fans, they are worth watching but for those not familiar with his films I suggest you first try his silents--they are Keaton at his best.

"Ditto" begins with Buster as an iceman. He meets and falls in love with one of his customers--unaware that her identical twin sister lives next door. In a very unusual move, the studio actually hired twins for this (Gloria and Barbara Brewster)--as most of the time, twins were usually played by one actor doing both roles. While this is all rather funny, I was surprised how quickly all this was resolved--the gag sure could have been carried a bit further. It's funny but you can't help but think it could have been a bit better--especially since the final portion of the film just seemed to come from left field--like they had no idea how to end the movie. All in all, a very weird movie.
