"What Am I…Beloved or Bewitched?" Split-screens, gender confusion and psychiatric solutions in The Dark Mirror (1946)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

It argues that the film responds to popular post-war debates regarding cinema, gender, psychology, and their intersection, through the “unravelling” of its unusual split-screen technique.
