Overview

When Alistair Cooke shows up to introduce Three Faces of Eve, we know that the fact-based story will bear more than a little fidelity to truth. Joanne Woodward won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Eve, a young Georgia housewife suffering from multiple personalities. Eve's husband David Wayne, confused by his wife's aberrant behavior when assuming her two "other selves," seeks out help from a psychiatrist Lee J. Cobb. 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. Ironically, Joanne Woodward would herself play a psychologist confronted with a multiple-personality case in the Emmy-winning 1976 TV movie Sybil.

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.

    Hail to Joanne!

    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.'

    Wonderful Movie

    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.

    the faces of the viewers

    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.
