"Katydid," on the other hand, was both interesting AND good, taking a completely loony idea and making it work somehow. A high school senior brings home a girl that he likes, tries to impress her but is upstaged by his twin brother. The kid turns to his best friend for advice, only to discover a secret that he’d rather not have known about. The same actor is able to play both brothers thanks to primitive (but convincing) 'Patty Duke Show' special effects! The only real problem with 'Katydid' is a bit of monotonous editing near the end which, to be fair, was probably necessary to make the effects work. This was a deeply weird movie that was among my favorites of the many shorts I saw.
