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]


Mike Farrell (O'Brien) is induced by con artists Brandy Kirby (Scott) and attorney Vincent Mailer (Knox) to purloin a rich couple's ten million dollar estate by having Farrell pose as their long-lost son.

When the old man refuses to change his will, Mailer decides to kill them, and Kirby plays along. Farrell refuses to assist, and Mailer plans to kill him too. After a botched attempt, with Kirby's help, Farrell exposes the scam to the old man, dooming Mailer's plan, and allowing Kirby and Farrell to unite, as 'Two of a Kind'.
