Twice Upon a Time is a British 1953 comedy film, directed by Emeric Pressburger based on the book Lottie and Lisa by Erich Kästner. It concerns a pair of twin sisters who are separated, when their parents divorce. They meet again by accident, when they are both sent to the same summer camp and they hatch a plan to meet up again.
Lotte and Lisa had already been adapted into the films Two Times Lotte (1950), and Hibari no komoriuta (1951). Twice Upon a Time was the first English language film adaptation; the story was later adapted as The Parent Trap (1961), and has been remade a number of times in both English and many other languages.
This film is the only solo directing credit for Pressburger, whose other directing credits are in association with Michael Powell.
