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 twin sisters who are separated when their parents divorce. They meet again by accident when they are sent to the same summer camp, and they hatch a plan to reunite their parents.
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 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.
