Storyline

Elizabeth has reoccurring headaches and trouble sleeping. Threatening letters signed by Lizzie are given to her, but she does not know anyone named Lizzie. As her situation deteriorates, she goes to a Dr. Wright who hypnotizes her. Deep in her subconscious, Dr. Wright finds three personalities; Elizabeth, the shy one that everyone knows; Lizzie, the wild one like her mother; and Beth, the good one she should have become. Dr. Wright must help the personality of Beth become the only one. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Goofs

In one scene at the bar, Johnny Mathis is singing at the piano and Robin is there with another girl. In one shot, smoke is rising from a cigarette in an ashtray on the piano. In the next shot, from over Johnny's right shoulder, there is no smoke coming from the ashtray. Then in the last shot at the bar, a close-up of Mathis, smoke can be seen rising again - all while Mathis is singing the same song. See more »

Pales in comparison to The Three Faces of Eve
22 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story is so trite and Parker overacts to the hilt. She shows only two emotions - sad and maniacal.

Gloria Blondell appears in the same robe in almost every scene! All we know about her is that she's Elizabeth's aunt and that she drinks a lot of bourbon. There's a neighbor man who seems interested in Blondell, but we don't know who he is or why he's interested. We never know if Blondell is interested in him.

The dialogue is poorly written. To show the passage of time, Blondell brings into different conversations how long it's been since Elizabeth has been seeing a psychiatrist.
