Andrew Simpson, piano

Written and edited by an uncredited Alfred Hitchcock, The White Shadow features Betty Compson playing twins Nancy and Georgina Brent, in love with the same man. This only surviving copy of the film, discovered in a New Zealand archive, is incomplete (though title cards fill in the gaps). Andrew Simpson provides live piano accompaniment. (Graham Cutts, 1924, 82 minutes) 

In The Dark Mirror, Olivia de Havilland portrays identical twins Terry and Ruth Collins—one kind, the other coldblooded—who together confuse psychologists and police trying to solve a murder. (Robert Siodmak, 1946, 85 minutes)
