Stewart and Cyril Marcus
Stewart and Cyril Marcus were identical twin gynecologists who practised together in New York City. On July 19, 1975, they were found dead due to withdrawal from barbiturate addiction in their Manhattan apartment at 450 East 63rd Street. The Marcus brothers' lives and the circumstances of their deaths are the subject of an article in Ron Rosenbaum's collection of essays, The Secret Parts of Fortune. Film director David Cronenberg based his 1988 movie Dead Ringers on their decline and death.
