Storyline

Two girls cast in the same mold physically, but in soul and character as far apart as the poles: Georgina, wistfully charming, sheltered from the world, and Nancy, devilishly fascinating, idol of the Paris underworld. Movingly and with a wealth of dramatic power, the story of these twin sisters is unfolded in "The White Shadow."

Technical question
30 June 2017 | by mjb0123See all my reviews

Does anyone know if the scene where the actress who plays both twin sisters is the first of its kind?

They are both on scene together at the same time, I assume spliced together. Is this the first time this had been done on film? This is a technical achievement because it is hardly noticeable and a viewer cannot see the edits.
