Does anyone remember this movie. It's driving me mad trying to find out the title. I'm being a bit sketchy with the details but here goes:

It's an 1980s (circa) American movie about a rich man (35-45) who adores his wife/girlfriend so much but she dies/is murdered. He cant get over it and gets very depressed and goes travelling. He's like this for years but one day he goes back to the place where he first met his wife/or place where she died (somewhere abroad in Japan/China) and out of the blue appears a woman identical to his wife in every way. He can't believe it and falls in love with this woman and marries her. Not sure if she knows at this time about being an exact lookalike. Not sure if the film revolves around whether she's the real wife after all or a twin who thinks he did the murder of her sister.

That's all I've got. I can see the male lead but can't put a name to him. He's not in films anymore so prob dead. He always died his hair black/dark brown (or wore wig), his hair was very wiry. I thought the female lead was Genevieve Bujold but I've looked up her movies on IMDB and it's none of them. I've also looked at list of movies with actors playing dual roles but this wasn't amongst them. I know it instantly if written down.

Can anyone help? Cheers.

What reminded me was watching Tightrope on record today. I like a bit of mystery who-dun-it type movie.
