Long lost identical twin sisters (both played by Hayley Mills) swap places as part of a plan to reunite their estranged parents, which results in a hilarious camping holiday and a series of pranks at the expense of their father’s gold-digging fiancée. Erich Kästner’s Lisa and Lottie was adapted into this Oscar-winning family entertainment, whose box office success lay in the film’s appeal to both the young and old.
