Did You Know?

Trivia:
In her 1977 book, "I'm Eve," Christine Costner Sizemore, the real-life woman on whom the character of "Eve" was based, said that she had really had 26 multiple personalities, not just three; and that the popularity of the book and movie based on her life had only traumatized her further because Dr. Corbett Thigpen had forced her to sign over all rights to her story to him. Contrary to this statement, Dr. Corbett Thigpen made personally sure that Mrs. Sizemore was given her fair share of any and all profit from the movie, for which there is paper-trail proof for any in doubt. Furthermore, Dr. Thigpen and Mrs. Sizemore were on good terms with each other before Dr. Thigpen passed away in 1999, if he had done her wrong, that would not have been the case.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: (at around 33 mins) When Eve Black is in the hospital sitting on the bed talking with the Dr. and he mentions introducing E. Black to E. White, E. Black is holding a cigarette in her left hand. She "wakes up" as E. White and covers herself, but has lost the cigarette.See more »
Quotes:
Eve Black:Don't you want to get me one?
Ralph White:Well, I've never seen you take a drink before.
Eve Black:Honey, there are a lot of things you've never seen me do before. That's no sign I don't do 'em.

Great film!, 5 October 1999
Author: Rose-35 from Pennsylvania

Wow! Woodward is amazing in this film as Eve White, Eve Black and Jane. She plays them all to perfection. It has to be hard to switch and do all these different characters right after one another but she did it wonderfully. It's no surprise she won the oscar for best actress. Great film, if you havent seen this one yet do ASAP!
