Double Bette Davis with this great actress playing twins. Lawrence Quirk correctly identifies A Stolen Life as the quintessential Bette Davis movie. With dual roles, Bette Davis is able to play both good and bad personnas. Thank you for making this available on DVD. The picture quality is excellent.

Loved the film, but I disagree with all the comments on the PQ. Warner's should have restored this film and cleaned it up. It deserves that.

They did it with "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" so they could have done it with his.

Comments about Stolen Life, A:

The picture quality was excellent. This is a great movie with a good story. A story you can follow and get involved with the characters. We should not dismiss a film because it is in black and white. These were the excellent movies. Great for fans of Bette Davis and to introduce a new audience to Ms. Davis.

          I've always been a huge Bette Davis fan. As I had never seen the film, I was happy to discover this on DVD. Bette is great playing twins (one good and one bad). Not her greatest film, but well worth checking out.

            A wonderful Betty Davis Classic Film! Great plot - Betty Davis plays twin sisters. I have been waiting for this film to come out on DVD. The picture quality on this DVD is excellent - very clear picture and sound is great. I would highly recommend this DVD for any fan of Classic Films. Buy this while it is still available. Hopefully WB will bring more Classic Films to DVD. Thanks WB!

            Although this DVD states that it is not remastered at all, the quality was much better than I had anticipated. Also glad it was made available on DVD. Would like to see other Bette Davis films made available in this way.

                I am so happy that Warner Archive exists. It allows me to purchase classic movies, such as A Stolen Life. I love the angst between the Pat/Kate and two Bette's ahhh..what an actress. Nobody has Bette's dramatic acting style. Only time I could catch this movie, was to watch TCM. Also, A Stolen Life, was not part of any Bette Davis collections, glad I was directed to Warner Archive, which had it available and was on sale.
