This movie bombed out when it was new, but I found it entertaining. Not very many people remember Cleo Moore but she is known today as "The Queen of the B movie Bad Girls". The Other Women is not one of my favorite film noir movies, but its worth a watch. ★★★

Tab Hunter stars as newspaper reporter Bob Herrick, who is doing research for an article at Potter's field cemetery when he believes he sees his own self staring back at him. Thinking himself tired, he shrugs it off but later sees himself at his apartment, and his girlfriend(played by Louise Sorel) believes that somehow at the cemetery a doppleganger(one's own phantom double) has latched itself onto him, and now wants to take over his life. His friends scoff, but when they start dying mysteriously, Bob realizes that he must take immediate action to repel the ghost...

I first saw this on TCM years ago, and was delighted to find it on Youtube. Whoever uploaded the film put the wrong title in the description, A wish, but its a good copy of Desire. Desire is the second of two films in which Dietrich and Cooper were co-starred. This is a very entertaining romantic comedy, with a simple plot, and witty dialogue. The acting, directing and story-line are brilliant, the movie will keep your interest at all times.★★★
