The Brighton Twins (French: Les jumeaux de Brighton) is a 1936 French comedy film directed by Claude Heymann and starring Raimu, Michel Simon and Suzy Prim.[1] It is based on the 1908 play of the same title by Tristan Bernard. Two twins are separated at birth in 1890, with one being raised in the United States and the other in France. More than forty years later they encounter each other for the first time.
