Stewart and Cyril Marcus
Stewart and Cyril Marcus were identical twin gynecologists who practiced together in New York City. They died together in 1975 of barbiturate withdrawal.
The brothers were gynecologists on the staff of New York Hospital and Cornell University Medical College. The Marcus brothers' lives and the circumstances of their deaths are the subject of an article in Ron Rosenbaum's collection of essays, The Secret Parts of Fortune. Film director David Cronenberg drew on elements from the biography of the Marcus brothers for his 1988 movie Dead Ringers, in particular their decline and their death.
