Although The Three Faces of Eve was released in , it might have been made during the s. Unfolding with the stolid inevitability of a classic Hollywood melodrama, it's saved from the ashcan of movie history by Joanne Woodward. As Eve, a young woman whose life unravels following her diagnosis with multiple personality disorder, Woodward is spectacular. One of the most gratifying social triumphs of the 20th century was the recognition of mental illness. That isn't to say that tolerance for those so afflicted is anywhere near complete today, but you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn't know someone who's taken an anti-depressant like Prozac or Paxil. There's still a stigma attached, but more people now understand that depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia are diseases that can be treated if not cured. Movies like The Three Faces of Eve contributed, in a significant way, to the gradual infiltration of such open-mindedness throughout society.

Las tres caras de Eva (1957), Nunnally Johnson.
She plays a conservative southern housewife Eve White who transforms into a bold and bawdy woman Eve Black. The movie is introduced by Alistair Cooke, who emphasizes that the events depicted really happened. Audiences and reviewers may have found it difficult to accept the rapid transformations from one personality to another, yet they were based on films of the actual Eve, whose name was Chris Sizemore. For a movie, it is still entertaining and informative. The Three Faces of Eve was an influential movie for psychiatry, because it made the public aware of the diagnosis of multiple personality disorder MPD , and arguably was partly responsible for the massive rise in the number of diagnoses of MPD in later years.
Luther shares his psychiatric office with Dr. Day, a neurologist, and consults with him frequently during Eve's treatment which bares no resemblance to psychoanalysis. In fact during most encounters psychiatrist and patient converse freely. Luther uses no particular psychotherapy technique or intervention except when he hypnotizes Eve, attempting to access repressed memory of presumed childhood trauma. He stands much of the time. Eve White and Jane mostly sit upright, but Eve Black roams the office freely. Luther talks freely about himself, frequently answering Eve's questions directly, but he maintains boundaries in the face of frequent assaults on them by Eve Black in particular.
