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

A shattered mirror.
6 October 2014 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is a compelling made-for-TV movie remake of the original 1946 film starring Olivia de Havilland. This movie stars Jane Seymour, who plays twins Leigh and Tracy Cullen. One of them is accused of murdering attorney Frank Girard and, as Detective Al Church (Vincent Gardenia) is having a difficult time finding out which twin is the perpetrator, he 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.

I haven't seen the original 1946 motion picture at the time of this review; however, this TV movie adaptation is actually quite captivating and well-acted. I enjoyed the suspense and edge-of-your-seat scenes this movie had to offer, which kept me engaged throughout the momentum-building plot. You would be left guessing throughout the story as to what the climax might unfold.

Jane Seymour and Stephen Collins have some good on-screen chemistry; Collins was convincing as the thoughtful psychiatrist and Seymour did a great job doing two roles with two very different personalities.

Overall, it's a captivating and mesmerizing murder mystery and well worth the watch if you happen to ever catch it on TV.
