Not on the exact same day (and neither of them is the "original"), but I watched Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931) and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941) within a few days of each other. Which proved to be a bad idea, because it was rather unflattering to the latter.
I do this all the time. I just did it last week with Lolita (1962) and Lolita (1997). I even did The Lady Vanishes as well, a few years ago. Others I've done:
