Nobody in film has yet portrayed evil bitch, and sometimes crazy evil
bitch, as well and as often as the late great Bette Davis, as evidenced
by such films as "Of Human Bondage", "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane",
and "The Nanny", just to name a few that come immediately to mind.
Capable of spitting out lines such as "Ah'd luv tuh kiss yuh, but ah
jus' washed mah hair" (from "Cabin In the Cotton", 1932), "Every time
you kissed me, I had to wipe my mouth! Wipe my mouth!" (from "Of Human
Bondage", 1934) to "But Blanche, yuh ahhh in that chair, yuh ahhhhhhh!"
(from "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane", 1962), Bette Davis made a
lucrative living with her hip-swinging sashaying stride and her
mannerisms that still make her a favorite of drag queens everywhere.
In "Dead Ringer", Bette was once again cast in the dual role of good
sister/bad sister (Edith Phillips/Margaret DeLorca) similar to her dual
roles in "A Stolen Life" (1946, with Glenn Ford). Paul Henreid, her
co-star in "Now Voyager" - remember him in the classic scene that
involved his lighting two cigarettes and handing Davis's character one
of them - directs. "Dead Ringer"'s premise is simple: good sister
impulsively tries to step into shoes of deceased bad sister in an
ill-conceived move to improve her own quality of life, without thinking
of the inherent consequences. In this case, as in the case of "A Stolen
Life", Davis inherits the dead bad sister's myriad mix of self-imposed
problems, but with worse consequences.
And as veteran filmgoers have realized for many years, the family dog
always knows who's who.
Karl Malden, as Davis' earnest boyfriend (and cop) Sgt. Jim Hobbson is
basically re-enacting his earnest boyfriend characterization from "A
Streetcar Named Desire", and Peter Lawford, who was a real-life playboy
and drunk, (in addition to allegedly acting as a bit of a pimp for the
Kennedys, circa the Marilyn Monroe/John F. Kennedy/Robert Kennedy
liasons era), plays Tony Collins...the drunken playboy boyfriend of the
dead bad sister, Margaret DeLorca.
"Dead Ringer" was made in an era of more rudimentary special effects,
so Davis's two characters interacting almost face-to-face in some
scenes was quite innovative for the time, well-done (better than the
obvious stand-in used for some scenes) and still holds up well.
Fun times ensue for all. Classic Bette melodrama.
