Five Of Me

I am surprised that this male version of THREE FACES OF EVE has not been commented yet. Actually, there were several films made on this scheme. I don't remember them all, but all are very interesting, such as this one where Birney gives a powerful performance s a Korea war vet suffering of personality problems.

Studing human behaviour is fascinating for the audience but also very difficult for actors to play. Don't forget that. And the Birney's performance is then more rewarding. It seems this feature is adapted from an autobiography, so, from a true story.

Directed by the prolific TV vet film maker Paul Wendkos.
