Storyline

Stephanie and Terry are two identical twins who have been split up since their parents divorced seven years before. Each envies the life style of the other so they decide, without telling Jeff or Mary, to switch families for a day or two. They soon find that it is harder than just looking like someone to be able to do what that person is expected to do. When they find that their charade may bring their parents back together they agree to continue it. A major complication starts when Jeff's girlfriend, and co-worker, Alice finds out the real story.

A Prefeminist "Parent Trap"
27 November 2012 | by BillRossVLogicSee all my reviews

Irecently recorded this from TCM. As an old comedy, it's quite good, and brief. The teenage dialogue of the day is a blast. However, the premise that the parents got divorced because he couldn't stay married to a "strong, glamorous, working woman" is archaic. When you hear speeches about the proper raising of children and a woman's "career" it's another era. There is a quiz on Radio! Old-fashioned music and dancing make it a treat. Yes, the casting of actual twins removes the technical issues associated with the 2 "Parent Traps", but these girls didn't go on to fame and/or (mis)fortune, like the subsequent actresses. I do miss the warm moment, in the newer films, when the girls first realize they're sisters. On the other hand, there is the SHOCKING moment near the end, when the twins disguise themselves as hotel maids in BLACKFACE!
