Abstract

The concept of 'character doubling,' which has deep literary roots, was developed with special force in the cinema. Carl Jung's theory of psychological types, first published in English in 1923, suggests an approach to understanding the use of stereotyped characters, especially doubles, so familiar in American cinema. The on- and off-screen career of actress Kim Novak is used as an illustration of this fascination with disjointed personalities, particularly in such films as Vertigo, Bell, Book and Candle, The Legend of Lylah Clare and Kiss Me, Stupid.
