Summer camp in Maine, USA. Two young redheads, Hallie and Annie, coincidentally meet and discover that they look pretty (and) similar. Soon, their common history opens up when they are banned into the isolation cabin for unsocial behaviour. Being twin sisters, their parents separated them at birth and divorced also. So, Annie grew up in London, England, living with her mother Elizabeth, who is a wedding gown designer. Hallie lived with her father Nick, a vineyard-owner, in Napa Valley, California. Both sisters decide to switch sides, as Annie never had a father and Hallie never had a mother. All works well, until Nick decides to marry Meredith, a beautiful but creepy woman who is only after his money. Now, the girls decide to let the parents meet. Let the games begin.

Oliver is in trouble. He's been caught embezzling money from his father's company, and unless he can pay back the $250,000 he took (which he can't), he will be fired from his job, arrested and probably sent to jail. Meanwhile, his rich wife has not only refused to bail him out of this mess, she's planning to divorce him. Desperate, Oliver thinks up a way out. He takes out an insurance policy on his wife with him as the beneficiary, then hires a hit man to kill her. The only problem is that because the doctor who performed the examination is an incompetent fraud, the insurance policy is invalid. Desperate to call off the hit, Oliver tracks down the hit man, only to find that he's subcontracted the killing to another hit man. Tracking down that killer reveals that he, too, has hired it out to a third person, and so on, and so on. Just how many people are trying to kill Oliver's wife?

Thirteen-year-olds prim and proper Bostonian Sharon McKendrick and tomboyish Californian Susan Evers meet at summer camp. It's hate at first sight, as besides the differing length of their hair, they look exactly the same. After the girls carry out one battle after another against each other, the camp administrators ultimately place the two in solitary confinement, the two eating, sleeping, and playing only with each other. It is during this confinement that they finally get a chance to know each other and learn that they are indeed twins, separated when they were babies when their parents, Maggie McKendrick and Mitch Evers, divorced. Wanting to get to know and ultimately love the parent they never met, Sharon and Susan decide to switch places, Sharon will go to California and pretend to be Susan, and Susan will go to Boston and pretend to be Sharon. The other thing they believe is that their parents still love each other, why else had neither ever remarried. The two parents would ultimately have to "un-switch" them, when the girls hope their parents will fall in love all over again. Sharon and Susan are initially able to carry off the ruse, but in California, their plan hits a snag when Mitch introduces his daughter to a young woman named Vicky Robinson, Vicky, who aspires to be the second Mrs. Mitchell Evers. Sharon and the domestics in the Evers household think Vicky is merely a gold digger out for Mitch's money. Sharon and Susan have to figure out a way to get rid of Vicky and bring Maggie to California more quickly than planned, so that their parents can reconcile, and the foursome can be one big happy family.

Spartacus

Spartacus was directed by Stanley Kubrick and Anthony Mann and starred Kirk Douglas as the titular slave, Spartacus who leads a slave revolt against the ruling Roman Empire. The film is based on true historical events surrounding a slave revolt led by a slave called Spartacus in 73 B.C.; the events of the film were dramatized for a novel of the same name by Howard Fast and adapted for the screen by Dalton Trumbo. The film was produced by Kirk Douglas's Bryna production company to cash in on the trend for historical epics that had seen the earlier Ben-Hur be a large hit. Upon beginning production Douglas and Universal Pictures stated to the press that Trumbo was the screenwriter despite his blacklisting during the 1950's McCarthy era anti-communist witchhunt. By publicly announcing Trumbo as screenwriter and not forcing him to use a pseudonym Douglas and Universal Pictures helped bring an end to the blacklisting of Hollywood figures in the 50's and 60's. Spartacus tells the story of a slave called Spartacus who is unwilling to be ordered around by his Roman employers; his unwillingness to work as a slave forces his owner to make him a gladiator forced to fight to entertain Roman's of all social classes in the Colliseum. While fighting and training as a gladiator Spartacus begins a feud with General Crassus, played by Laurence Olivier; Spartacus is given a female slave who he falls in love with called Varinia, played by Jean Simmons. Seeing the close relationship between Spartacus and Varinia General Crassus takes the slave away and forced the gladiator trainer to use Spartacus's anger to make a better gladiator. An ensuing fight turns into a riot and the gladiators escape their captors to flee to the Roman countryside. Once free the gladiators are joined by more slaves who wish to fight for their freedom; despite not feeling he has the intelligence to lead the revolt Spartacus is elected the leader of the group and leads the slave army towards the sea and their freedom. In a series of battles the slaves defeat the Roman army until they finally fall to a larger Roman army; following their loss the slaves are offered freedom if they give up Spartacus. In the famous scene each slave stands and declares themselves Spartacus. Eventually, Spartacus is found and crucified as he is comforted by Varinia. Spartacus was seen as a controversial movie at the time of release; many anti-communist groups picketed the film because of the use of screenwriter Trumbo and the film's apparent sympathy for socialist causes. This was Stanley Kubrick's first big budget Hollywood movie after he replaced initial director Anthony Mann after the first week of shooting.
