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.

Going Wilde
4 July 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Arriving via American Airlines in Florida, child psychologist Gail Patrick (as Mary Hale) has a frosty meeting with local feature editor Preston Foster (as Jeff Turner). It turns out they divorced seven years ago. Strangely, the court divided the pair's twin girls. Mother received the cultured Lyn Wilde (as Stephanie Hale) and father brought up jitterbugging Lee Wilde (as Terry Turner). Intrigued by their opposite lifestyles, the young women change identities. This means fooling boyfriends Marshall Thompson (as Jimmy) and Jimmy Lydon (as Mickey). Wondering if the parents get back together is unexciting, but the dance sequences are fun. Near the end, the Wilde twins appear as "black-faced" hotel maids...
