It was the role of a lifetime, for any actor, but Colman got it, and he nailed it. He won an Oscar and a Golden Globe, and he deserved them.

Colman faz um belo trabalho como o perturbado ator que falha em separar realidade da ficção, mas Cukor e seus roteiristas se perde nos aspectos da produção que devem ao noir, tornando-a frágil e artificial.

Subtle, well-directed drama.

Ronald Colman won a Best Actor Oscar for his ornate and hammy performance as an obsessed matinee-idol stage actor cracking up before our eyes.

Cukor's first teaming with writers Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin draws on the professional hazard of actors who fail to distinguish between their lives on stage and off; Ronald Colman won the Oscar for this part.

Audience Reviews for A Double Life

An actor gets too involved in his roles and eventually looses himself in the role of Othello. Colman gives a great performance in this movie.

Coleman allegedly pulls this one of his hat for an Oscar win at the end of his career but I wasn't terribly impressed. Silly at times.
