This is a fact-based story about a young Georgia housewife named Eve, who suffers from multiple personalities. Eve's husband, confused by his wife's aberrant behavior when assuming her two "other selves," seeks out help from a psychiatrist. Carefully probing Eve's subconscious via hypnosis, the doctor finds out that, though each of Eve's personalities is aware of the other's existence, none are related. After months of therapy, Eve is purged of her negative selves and is totally cured.

This movie takes me back to times I lived at a young age. It reminds me of the very defined roles of men / women in marriage in the 1950's. It's a wonderful film. We didn't know so much then. Some day we'll look back on today and be amazed by even more advancements in understanding the mind. Kudos to the actors and producers.... they didn't "Hollywood" the story.... it's a touching tale.

I'm certainly no psychiatrist and I would never, ever say that I knew a hill of beans about something like Multiple Personality Disorder - But, with that said, I certainly found this film's over-simplified fast-tracking in regards to the complete cure of Eve White's obviously complicated, deep-rooted mental affliction to be just a tad too pat and easily remedied from this layman's puzzled point of view._____ With the way that Eve's psychological illness was treated in this somewhat pedestrian-level, little picture, all that was needed to fix Eve's screwed-up, little head was for the doc to subject her to but a few limp-wristed sessions of hypno-therapy._____ I guess this over-simplification of dealing with a very complex disorder of the mind was a deliberate attempt by this film's producers to present its subject matter as a marketable product to the naive movie-goers of the 1950s._____ Believe me, I did not hate this movie. But as a film dealing with very serious psychological issues, it just wasn't structured in a convincingly enough manner to hold even an ounce of believability. And, so, with that, I rated it with only 2.5 stars.

Joanne Woodward did an amazing job at playing the different Eves.
