At one point, Dr Beighley shows colleagues some amateur home movies demonstrating her interacting with animals at a zoo.

Stuart Whitman is seen in a classical acting role and recruited to play a very rough part: He is to be paid for feigning insanity and being committed to psychiatric hospital. The goal is to learn more about a character played by Roddy McDowell, who is confined there.
Whitman is excellent, as is McDowell. The latter develops a bit of an unstated crush on the former. So does Carol Lynley, who has a very small role for the major billing she gets.
The plot revolves around psychiatrist and researcher Lauren Bacall. This character could give Dr. Caligari a run for his money.
It's not hough art but i's exciting and suspenseful. And the acting is excellent all around.
