Product Description

Product Description

For her impressive portrayal of a woman with multiple personality disorder in The Three Faces of Eve, Joanne Woodward brought home the 1957 Best Actress Oscar. Based on Corbett H. Thigpen`s novel of the same name, The Three Faces of Eve follows the fascinating story of a deeply troubled young Southern housewife. Suffering from headaches, emotional upset and forgetfulness, Eve White sees a psychiatrist, Dr. Luther (Lee J. Cobb). At first Luther hypnotizes her, unveiling two additional personalities in the woman a vamp and an independent sophisticate. But curing Eve will require a deep probe into an abusive past with support from her less-than supportive husband. With narration from the inimitable Alistair Cooke, The Three Faces of Eve is intriguing drama at its classic best.

Format: DVD
This is one of the finest movies of Joanne Woodward in which she performs the role of a housewife torn between three contrasting personalities; Eve White, Eve Black and Jane. This is a real life story about multiple personality disorder suffered by Chris Costner Sizemore of South Carolina, and diagnosed by Drs. Corbett H. Thigpen, and Hervey M. Cleckley. This story was brilliantly adapted for the screen by the work of Nunnally Johnson, who also wrote for such classics as: How to Marry a Millionaire, Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation, and We're not Married.

Woodward plays the role of socially repressed Eve White, a housewife and mother of a daughter, Bonnie White (Terry Ann Ross). The second personality is the oversexed Eve Black, clad in sexy bras, and short skirts, drinking, smoking, and always ready for fun at the local bar; and the third person called Jane who is relatively normal. The viewers see a metamorphosis in Eve White who changes from perfect housewife to a downright difficult lady. The real drama unfolds in the offices of Dr. Curtis Luther (Lee Cobb) who methodically investigates the psychological disorder of his patient and comes to the conclusion that Eve suffers from the split personalities of three contrasting women. There is a great deal of drama when the viewers see Eve strangling her only daughter when she "appears" as Eve Black (Eve Black considers that is not her child). The constant fights and domestic problems with her husband Ralph White (David Wayne), and his visits to see her at the psychiatric hospital are very moving. When she is resident of the state facility for mentally disturbed, we find more of the irresponsible and selfish nature of Eve Black who hangs out in the bars, picks men and finally disappoints them, no matter how much it hurts them.

Doctor Curtis Luther (Cobb) treats Eve White (Woodward) for Multiple Personality Disorder...

Christine, Strawberry Girl.

It has become one of those films that is stuck in some sort of Hollywood purgatory. Its impact back on release in 1957, where Hollywood was still struggling to come to terms with putting mental illness on celluloid, should not be understated, and it's that time frame where one might have to transport yourself to get the benefits of the production.

Looking at it today, it is rife with simplistic ideals, where it often feels like Hollywood believes there is this magical cure for mental illness, a world where some amiable doctor can chat the chat, snap his fingers and bang! What joy, it's all good really, and sorry we played some of the film for laughs...

The reason why it is in Hollywood no man's land is because in spite of the near crassness of the piece, it still stands up as a film of importance, a picture that brought out the topic at hand into the mainstream. As an interim movie in the trajectory of big screen forays into matters of the mind, it advanced awareness and built a bridge that the likes of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Girl Interrupted would later traverse with some distinction.

even though this is an old movie, it's really good- and i highly suggest it

the story is about eve, who is in treatment for her multiple personality disorder. their are some really deep bits, like a sceen where eve has to kiss the dead face of her grandmother, but their are also some lighter parts too- and it's not just serious stuff

for example: the doctor falls in love with eve black (another one of her personalities) and takes her out

5 stars though

Joanne Woodward brought home a Best Actress OSCAR® for her unforgettable portrayal of a woman with multiple personality disorder. Woodward plays Eve White, a troubled housewife who begins seeing a psychiatrist.

FILM FACT: Joanne Woodward won the Academy Award® for Best Actress, making her the first actress to win an Oscar for portraying three different personalities [Eve White, Eve Black and Jane]. `The Three Faces of Eve' also became the first film to win the Best Actress Award without getting nominated in another category since Bette Davis won for `Dangerous' in 1935.
