Storyline

Eve White is a quiet, mousy, unassuming wife and mother who keeps suffering from headaches and occasional black outs. Eventually she is sent to see psychiatrist Dr. Luther, and, while under hypnosis, a whole new personality emerges: the racy, wild, fun-loving Eve Black. Under continued therapy, yet a third personality appears, the relatively stable Jane. This film, based on the true-life case of a multiple personality, chronicles Dr. Luther's attempts to reconcile the three faces of Eve. multiple personalities.

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 really had 26 multiple personalities at the time, not just three; and that the popularity of the book and movie based on her life only traumatized her further as Dr. Corbett Thigpen forced her to sign over all rights to her story. Contrary to this statement, Dr. Corbett Thigpen made personally sure that Mrs. Sizemore was given fair share of any and all profit from the movie. Furthermore, Dr. Thigpen and Mrs. Sizemore were on good terms with each other before Dr. Thigpen passed away in 1999. See more »

A must see performance
22 December 1998 | by Paul-103See all my reviews

Joanne Woodward is SO good in this (she won the academy award for best actress). Her portrayals of Eve White (dowdy and dreary), Eve Black (sensual and wild) and the eventual Jane (pretty close to what you'd call normal) were nothing short of incredible due to the diversity of the personalities and the fact that she was able to achieve such believability. Got to see this one.
