Plot Summary

Elizabeth has reoccurring headaches and trouble sleeping. Threatening letters signed by Lizzie are given to her, but she does not know anyone named Lizzie. As her situation deteriorates, she goes to a Dr. Wright who hypnotizes her. Deep in her subconscious, Dr. Wright finds three personalities; Elizabeth, the shy one that everyone knows; Lizzie, the wild one like her mother; and Beth, the good one she should have become. Dr. Wright must help the personality of Beth become the only one. Written by Tony Fontana

Edit
Trivia Shirley Jackson was not impressed with this filmed adaptation of her novel "The Bird's Nest." Her assessment: "Abbott and Costello meet a multiple personality." (From Ruth Franklin's 2016 biography "Shirley Jackson: A Rather Haunted Life.") See more »
Goofs 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 »
