Storyline

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

Why do they make such inferior remakes??
19 July 2001 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Jane Seymour's performance in THE DARK MIRROR doesn't hold a candle to Olivia de Havilland's job in the original film. Nor is the script any better than the one which was nominated for Best Original Screenplay in 1946.

This is a strictly below par TV drama with Stephen Collins, earnest and likeable enough as the psychiatrist in the role originated by Lew Ayres in the 1946 film. But the script is the main problem. In revising the story for '80 audiences, the taut suspense was diluted. The subtle touches that de Havilland gave to the twin sisters is missing here.

Strictly for Jane Seymour fans who aren't familiar with the original movie. Passable at best. Good twin vs. bad twin is old hat by now but at least it was done with more style and vivid acting in the earlier version.
