Storyline

Stephanie and Terry are two identical twins who have been split up since their parents divorced seven years before. Each envies the life style of the other so they decide, without telling Jeff or Mary, to switch families for a day or two. They soon find that it is harder than just looking like someone to be able to do what that person is expected to do. When they find that their charade may bring their parents back together they agree to continue it. A major complication starts when Jeff's girlfriend, and co-worker, Alice finds out the real story.

Jimmy: [to Kitty, in utter astonishment] She's slap-happy!
Kitty: Maybe she's got anemia!
Whitey: [gleefully correcting her] Amnesia.

Enjoyable 40s teen film with great Lindy Hop sequences!
9 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fun film a la THE PARENT TRAP.

It's strong point is that it features 3 or more excellent Lindy Hop aka Jitterbug dance sequences done to big band Swing music by some of the best dancers around at the time.

Jean Porter, alive and reasonable still at this writing, also had a nice Lindy sequence in TIL THE END OF TIME with Guy Madison.

The Wilde Twins had a short career over at Metro.

Jimmy Lydon was starring in the HENRY ALDRITCH series over at Paramount.

Nice little MGM 'B" picture.

The director, Harry Beaumont, had been directing MGM films since the silent era.
