I’m trying to recall the name of this movie … guy befriends a wealthy guy and they look similar. People confuse them. He starts deliberately acting like he is his friend and people believe the charade. Eventually, I think he kills the wealthy friend and assumes his identity. He learns to forge his name. The only person who doesn’t seem convinced that the is wealthy guy is the girl. She demands to know what happened. That is all I can remember. Thanks.
