Duck Soup (The Marx Brothers Silver Screen Collection) (1933)

Not Rated
  Not exactly a stand-in, Rufus T. Firefly's still an impostor.
The Great Dictator (Criterion) (1940)
12345678910
  Neither impostor nor stand-in, there is the dual role in a political send-up.
Bananas (1971)
12345678910
  'Nuff said; check out Kagemusha, too.
The Prince and the Pauper (1977)
12345678910
  An American original (though not the original American version).
Being There (1979)
12345678910
  Again, not a stand-in, and only arguably an impostor.
Body Double (1984)
12345678910
  Hate the film, but had to include it.
Dave (1993)
12345678910
  Sweet guy. And don't forget Moon Over Parador, with Raul Julia and Richard Dreyfuss (also not available).
The Majestic (2001)
12345678910
  I'd have preferred Preston Sturges' Hail the Conquering Hero, but it's not available, alack alas.
Time Out (2001)
12345678910
  A more current take on the tale.
