However, he chooses a poor carnival worker as his double in the murder plot and, in his demented state, is not aware that the carnival worker looks nothing like him at all.

Fear BA 3003
1954, b&w - Fear is the sixth, and last film that Rossellini made with Bergman. The critical derision with which all of their films together were greeted ended in a series widely recognized today as one of cinema's artistic peaks. Fear, however, from a story by Stefan Zweig, is the most problematic of the group. Filmed in Munich, it was shot twice, first in English, then in German, then released in two versions. Angst, the German version, has slightly different montage, an opera ("La Boheme") instead of a piano concert, and lacks some scenes included in Fear, but makes more extensive use of direct sound. To confuse matters further, Paura, the Italian dubbing of Fear, was withdrawn by its Italian distributor and re-released (without Rossellini's participation) with a voice-over commentary, a new ending in which Irene leaves her husband, and a new title, Non Credo Piu In Amore -- "I don't believe in love anymore."
