Separated at Birth, Part 956: Helga and Anne

And now comes perhaps my strangest Separated at Birth of all.

From the first time I saw National Velvet, I noticed a remarkable resemblance between Anne Revere, the actress who plays Velvet Brown's mother, and Andrew Wyeth's legendary Helga.

I don't know why others don't see it. The hair is different, and Revere more prone to smiling, but surely the features are very close. 

Put aside the differences in wardrobe and hair, and focus on cheekbones, lips, nose, chin.

Even the rose-colored skin is a match. It's just one of those strange, strange things.
