Yes, it is possible - but rather inconveniant.  Before exposing frame to be
double exposed, tighten up film with rewind just a little and hold it.
Make first exposure.  Then, push rewind lever, and while continuing to hold
rewind knob tight, wind the film lever and re-fire.  It will only recock
the shutter.  Makes horrible sound.  When this was demonstrated by Offical
Leica chaps, they suggested that after yourlast multiple exposure that you
fire off a blank frame to give space for the camera to correct itself.
This works the same with most SLRs   Jim
