Review on IMDB:

Bette Davis is at her best in "A Stolen Life" playing the most satisfactory characters in the decade of the forties. The mere idea of showing Ms. Davis on the same frame with herself must have presented a challenge for the director, Curtis Bernhardt. We can't think of any other actress that could have pulled this off with the elegance and the good instinct that Bette Davis brought to the project.

The mere fact of playing two women so different from one another must have been what inspired Ms. Davis to take the dual role, which proved to be one of her most popular on the screen. The good Kate is sweet and unassuming, while Patricia, the identical twin sister, is vain, envious and shallow. In taking Bill away from Kate, Patricia doesn't change her way of life, something that pains Bill, as he has second thoughts about the mistake he made in marrying the wrong woman.

The film will delight all Bette Davis fans because they will get two Bettes for the price of one. Ms. Davis' trademark movements and those expressive eyes are seen throughout the film. Glenn Ford proved to be the right kind of leading man because he always projected an honesty and an integrity little seen in other actors of his generation. Both actors make the movie work in unexpected ways.

The supporting cast is also interesting. Walter Brennan, Dane Clark, Charles Ruggles, and the rest are perfect in the background. The musical score by Max Steiner plays well with the action in the film. The excellent cinematography of Ernest Haller and Sol Polito adds another layer to the movie.

Curtis Bernhardt directed with flair and made "A Stolen Life" a film in which to cherish for the great performances he got from Bette Davis and Glenn Ford.
