Two of a Kind is a 1951 film noir directed by Henry Levin, and written by James Edward Grant, James Gunn, and Lawrence Kimble. The film features Edmond O'Brien, Lizabeth Scott, Alexander Knox and Terry Moore.[1]


Lefty Farrell (O'Brien) links up with con artists Brandy Kirby (Scott) and Vincent Mailer (Knox). The three concoct a scheme to rob a rich couple out of ten million dollars by having Farrell pose as the couple's long-lost son.

When the husband refuses to change his will, Kirby and Mailer decide to kill them. Farrell confesses the scam to the elderly couple, which prompts Mailer to add him to his list of potential victims.
