"The services of a genuine "hypnologist" [sic] were sought for the film. Sydney Box brought over the famous American hypnologist Victor Alheim to advise on the script. He had been attached to the US army in Britain and dealt with extreme cases of shell-shock. While visiting the Riverside Studios at Hammersmith he gave demonstrations of his hypnotic powers by inducing trance symptoms in the personnel there" (from: the Book of the Film- The Seventh Veil) See more »

"The Seventh Veil" is about a concert pianist (Ann Todd)who is torn between three lovers, one being her wicked guardian Nicolas (James Mason).She is unable to play because she does not know who she loves, but is helped by psychiatrist Dr Larsen (Herbert Lom).This film is cast with wonderful actors and has an original storyline which makes it enjoyable to watch.I would definitely recommend it.
