By Wayne Klein HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 18, 2004
Format: DVD
"The Three Faces of Eve" broke new ground when it was released. It was the first examination of multiple personality disorder in a dramatic setting. Joanne Woodward gives a stunning performance as Eve a southern housewife who suffers from migranes, seems in constant emotional turmoil and has memory lapses. Her psychiatrist Dr. Luther (played by the marvelous character actor Lee J. Cobb) believes he's treating a common form of depression but he's startled to discover during one of his sessions that he's not speaking with Eve but with a whole different person. Based on the famous book documenting the real case (and not a "novel" as per the DVD case) by Corbett Thigpen, MD and Harvey Cleckley MD, Nunnally Johnson's script may be a bit pedantic for audiences today but there's still powerful performances and sharp direction that makes it worthwhile.

This special edition from Fox part of its "Studio Classics" collection includes a commentary by film historian Aubrey Solomon. Solomon's commentary provides precise and fascinating tidbits about how the film varied from the book and from the real case in addition to the usual background on the production of the movie. There's also a Movietone News Reel included of the Academy Awards (Joanne Woodward won for Best Actress). The original theatrical trailer is included and the restored image and sound are quite good.

Well worth picking up for fans of classic Hollywood movies from the 50's. My only complaint is Fox should have done a featurette on the making of the movie with interviews of Woodward and others and/or an alternate commentary track from the actress discussing the making of the movie.

Joanne Woodward gets one of those roles that most actresses must dream about - the opportunity to play a character with three distinct personalities. The film centres on this woman's attempt to regain her life with the assistance of a psychiatrist played by Lee J. Cobb. Woodward does a very good job of creating various personalities and balancing the role. I wish I knew more about multiple personalities and psychiatry to know how accurate the film is, because I found parts of it hard to believe. The way the hypnosis is presented seems to me to be far too easy and simple, and to be honest, we don't actually get to see very much of how the doctor helped the young woman. If you look to the film less as a case study and more as a piece of drama, you will find much to enjoy about it. And regardless of how factual and accurate it is, The Three Faces of Eve was an important step in presenting mental illness to the public, and for that reason also, it deserves to be seen.

THE THREE FACES OF EVE remains to this day a riveting and fascinating glimpse into the mind of a person afflicted with multiple personality disorder, with Joanne Woodward in her Academy Award-winning tour-de-force.

The story concerns a meek young married woman called Eve White (Joanne Woodward) who begins to have regular consultations with Dr Luther (Lee J. Cobb) when she starts experiencing moments of blackout and amnesia, which are later discovered to be the manifestations of multiple personality disorder. When Eve White passes out, the more-seductive and confident Eve Black emerges and wreaks her own kind of havoc. Then there is the third personality, the well-grounded and assured Jane. All three fight for the ultimate and permanent control of Eve White's body, but only one will win...

Joanne Woodward's performance is truly phenomenal. She deserved her Oscar win and then some. Lee J. Cobb is fantastic as the patient Dr Luther with David Wayne as Eve White's bewildered husband. This was based on the well-documented medical case of Chris Costner-Sizemore, a woman with several fragmented personalities who later successfully recovered from her illness. The bulk of the dialogue comes verbatim from the original medical case-notes by Corbett H. Thigpen MD and Hervey M. Cleckley MD.

Also featuring Edwin Jerome, Nancy Kulp and Douglas Spencer. (Single-sided, dual-layer disc).

Yes, I love this little gem of a film that inspired my interest in the wonders of the human mind. Joanne Woodward has my vote for Best Actress with the only flaw in the film being parts of the script and the questionable casting of David Wayne as the dim-witted husband who refuses to accept his wife's disorder. It always earns rave reviews here on campus and several of my fellow students ask to see it and study it for psychology class and to get an introduction into the life of a multiple personality case. It's already a fave among the teachers and staff here. This is the perfect companion to the film "Sybil" and I hope it's released again on video soon.

"The Three Faces of Eve"(1957) is the latest from the Fox "Studio Classics" series to get a Blu-ray upgrade and it's one of the best. The video quality is pristine and anyone viewing this Blu-ray would be hard pressed to find any print damage(lines, specks, torn frames, etc.) which means this great looking Blu-ray presentation probably came from the original camera negative. Once again, the restoration team at Fox deserves lots of credit for making "Eve" look brand new(Bitrate: 37.98). The black and white cinematography by Stanley Cortez really stands out with grays, blacks and whites(no pun intended) especially sharp and well balanced throughout the film. That being said, the story may not appeal to everyone and may even appear dated considering what we now know about multiple personality disorder. The film really belongs to two people: Nunnally Johnson who wrote, produced and directed the film and Joanne Woodward in her Oscar winning performance(actually performances) as a lonely Georgia housewife with three personalities. Woodward is astonishing as Eve White, Eve Black and a woman simply called Jane. What Woodward does with each of the characters she plays in the film is even more impressive now nearly sixty years later. Young actors today need to study this film if they're serious about acting, that's how good she is. Woodward was born in Georgia so the accent she uses in the film is real. David Wayne, Lee J. Cobb and even Vince Edwards are part of the supporting cast. This latest Blu-ray presentation from the Fox catalog should be a must for fans of Joanne Woodward. "The Three Faces of Eve" is 91 minutes and was filmed in Cinemascope(Aspect Ratio: 2.35.1). It contains the following subtitles: English SDH, Spanish and French. Audio is as follows: English DTS-HD Master Audio 1.Read more ›
