Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The surprising success of The Three Faces of Eve unleashed numerous films and stories to come about multiple personalities. In 1957, delving into mental illness was a more controversial proposition, and The Three Faces of Eve broke disturbing new ground for Hollywood. Joanne Woodward, who would later play the psychiatrist treating Sybil in that 1976 classic about a woman with multiple personalities, won an Oscar as a woman with three personalities: a mousy housewife, a party girl, and a sophisticated matron. The film also represented a growing cultural trend of examining the psychological toll on women of the constricting gender roles of the 1950s.

This is really a great portrayal of this real-life case. This is one of the best movies I've seen that deals with multiple personality disorder. Joanne Woodward delivers a powerful performance, as always, along with making every ounce of this movie believable. Quite interesting that Joanne would later play 'doctor' in the film 'Sybil', in which Sally Field plays a multiple personality patient with about 13 more personalities than 'Eve.'

This movie teaches us how many people are living with a problem like this and dont know how to control it. And how they show the way that person sufferd for this problem. Its a wonderful movie it really teached me alot about paying attention to how people change, and when they change could be for a good or bad reason.

I enjoyed seeing this movie everytime it's on TV, I'm buying it so I don't have to wait to see it on TV, it should be on eveyones shelf, the acting by Joann Woodward is the best in the business, I'm glade the Academy thought so too.

i thinking that the faces thing is extrodinary, but the one thng that gets me is the different face changes, i mean eve white is more of a pitty look to her face and black has more of a spontanious look about her, and now jane well she has more of a mother thing going on there.
