A Dead Ringer for "I Married a Dead Man " - remake in the air
In 1982, A novel written by American Author William Irish, under the title of "I married a dead man", gave rise in France to a Film called "J'ai épousé une ombre" starring Nathalie Baye, Richard Bohringer, and Francis Huster. A pregnant woman fleeing a violent boyfriend, boards a train and is taken into care by a newlywed couple returning to the Bordeaux region (the husband has yet to present his new wife to his parents who are rich wine-growers). The train crashes, the couple are killed and the girl is taken for the dead newlywed wife because she was wearing her ring at the time the crash happened ! The story "She's no Angel is identical to this, except that it is a car crash, and not a train crash but every other aspect identical, even down to the fact that the welcoming family are winegrowers ! So there has to have been some copying somewhere. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed both "J'ai épousé une ombre" and "she's no angel" though I suppose the credit must first of all go to William Irish as 'tis he who wrote the original novel Quite entertaining !
