To preserve these articles as they originally appeared, The Times does not alter, edit or update them. Instead, Rob Sloan and Tim Philips changed things up for their second venue. So while Dead Ringer does have delightfully imaginative cocktails, it also has a seasonal food menu, an interesting and ever-changing wine list, plus an all-Australian selection of beer and cider. And all this in an elegant, neighbourhood-bar setting. The Yuzu Breezer is a cheeky take on the Bacardi alcopop you may remember from your youth.
It's a light mixture of yuzu liqueur, grapefruit, rum and soda. The drink is pre-batched in bottles. In the kitchen, former Est and Farmhouse Kings Cross chef Tristan Rosier runs a seasonal menu of eight smaller dishes and eight large plates. There might be chicken liver parfait, or larger dishes such as Black Angus sirloin with black garlic mustard.
Finish with pickled pineapple, or toffee ice-cream with bee pollen. Philip Carey as Sgt. Ben Hoag. Jean Hagen as Dede.

Apr 08, Look to see the difference between how Bette smooches Karl, her boyfriend, and Peter, her, uh, other boyfriend, its worth the admission price alone. Kevin M. W Super Reviewer. Jul 13, Another in a string of Bette Davis' comeback movies of the sixties, "Dead Ringer" feels and looks recycled, but has all the mystery and charm of a Davis' film.
What feels recycled ultimately boils down to the fact that many of the pieces of the plot are the same as other, better films. Davis had played identical twins earlier in the film "A Stolen Life" and Olivia de Havilland had basically played the same kind of role in a very similar film entitled "The Dark Mirror" from that same year. Murderous twins have always been an interesting thriller concept and noir staple, because of the extremes that siblings can present when they are given the chance to kill.
This film and another film of that decade put Davis back into the limelight and with good reason. She was the queen of the film noir as well as acted in dramatic turns in the thirties and forties.
This film exploits her popularity to the fullest, as well as her newfound fame, and without her this film would not have had the same impact, and wouldn't have been enjoyable. Another great performance in this film comes from legendary actor Karl Malden. It's his curiosity into the death of his girlfriend and compassion towards her twin sister that really makes a statement about how a person changes when they murder someone, no matter how sweet or innocent they were beforehand.

It seems obvious why Edie kills Margaret: because she is in debt, her sister has everything because she married her former beau, and Edie has had a hard, miserable life. Her impersonation of her sister isn't always spot on, and the ensuing story about her living day to day, trying to keep up the mirage she's concocted, doesn't do much except tell us about the social life of Margaret. The film doesn't say much about Edie as a character, or how she feels while deceiving everyone, including her boyfriend, which is especially damning.
She is immediately demonized after killing her sister, and is oftentimes shown to be unreliable, calculating, and very bitter. This film only emphasizes Davis, and most of the film is exposition that includes her own musings.

The peripheral characters are mostly slags and socialites, and except for Karl Malden, none of them give any insight into the character of Margaret, who remains a mystery except for what little insight Tony gives us, which is only that he exists. Only the ending tells us anything about either twin, gives us any moral, or any damning existential question.
Spencer S Super Reviewer. Sep 05, This is a cool thriller, Davis plays twins, and the rest of the cast is good too. I really liked this movie, it's thrilling.
