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 »
Lizzie is a magnificent study of multiple personality disorder, a far superior film to The Three Faces of Eve, which won the Acadamy Award that year. Eleanor Parker makes all her transformations between Lizzie's characters on screen, a far more challenging task that disappearing off camera as Joanne Woodward did! Her portrayal is subtle and wonderful. I highly recommend this movie.
