I don't know.  The references that another poster mentioned about
a move with the "Vertigo" syndrome was fairly persuasive.  The
protagonist was named Laura, there was some guy named Waldo Lydecker...

Still, I feel that Madeline is NOT LP.  First, Albert would have done
found out in the autopsy.  Second, it's my feeling that Laura is to
Madeline as Emerald is to Jade.  That is, Laura is the evil (not the
right word, maybe "bad" is better) twin, Madeline is the good twin.
We haven't seen much of Laura without tons of blue makeup, so it's
hard to judge facial expressions.  It's my feeling that Madeline's
smiles are downright goofy.  I would be surprised if Madeline were
to be anything but a naive, sweet, youth.
