After attorney Frank Girard is murdered, Detective Al Church (Vincent Gardenia) suspects that Ms. Leigh Cullen (Jane Seymour) is the perpetrator, as she was supposedly last seen with the man. However, after Leigh's alleged twin sister, Tracy, shows up at the police line-up with Leigh, Church is left puzzled and with no specific suspect to pinpoint. Therefore, Church asks Psychiatrist Dr. Jim Eiseley (Stephen Collins), an acquaintance of Leigh's, to evaluate the sisters and run tests on them in hopes of filtering out the murderer. However, Eiseley's increasing involvement with Leigh complicates things with Tracy in the picture. Written by Oliver Chu

Jane Seymour has enjoyed a career divided. Half the time, she's portrayed gentle, serene heroines. The other half has been made up of vicious, man-eating vixens. Here, fans of Ms. Seymour will get both! This updating of a 1946 Olivia de Havilland movie focuses on twin sisters, recently reunited after being separated as infants. One or both of them is under suspicion of the murder of a man they were dating under one identity (without his knowledge!) If one doesn't care for Jane, there's no sense in watching any of this because she IS the movie. She's in virtually every scene either as one twin or the other or both. Support comes in the form of blond, rather bland Collins as a blond, rather bland psychiatrist and Gardenia (hamming it up all over the place) as a determined cop. The movie is mainly an excuse to show off Seymour's incredible mane of hair which extends to her rear end and to put her in some hilarious Nolan Miller get-ups. Seymour also gets to show off the two aforementioned aspects of her screen persona. The story does not translate particularly well to a modern setting as the viewer has by now become accustomed to this type of story (a daytime soap opera staple by now!) It was more provocative and surprising in the 1940's. The film asks the audience to believe that two sisters can live under one identity (in a high rise apartment and with designer clothes) and take turns working at a University gift shop (!) for a living!! Whatever they made at that job wouldn't keep them in creme rinse for a week!
