Description by OLDIES.com:

Based on Corbett H. Thigpen's novel of the same name, The Three Faces of Eve follows the fascinating story of a deeply troubled young Southern housewife. Suffering from headaches, emotional upset and forgetfulness, Eve White sees a psychiatrist, Dr. Luther (Lee J. Cobb). At first Luther gives Eve banal, commonsense advice and sends her home to her husband (David Wayne). But as Eve's condition worsens, Luther hypnotizes her, unveiling two additional personalities within the woman - a vamp and an independent sophisticate. But curing Eve will require a deep probe into an abusive past and support from her less-than-supportive husband. With narration by the inimitable Alistair Cooke, The Three Faces of Eve is intriguing drama at its classic best.

Product Description:

This engrossing drama written, directed, and produced by Nunnally Johnson (THE MAN IN THE GRAY FLANNEL SUIT) is the true story of a Georgia housewife with three personalities; it is based on the book of the same title written by her doctors. Narrator Alistair Cooke introduces "Eve White" (Joanne Woodward), a polite, dreary woman, and her unsophisticated husband, Ralph (David Wayne), who are seeking help from Dr. Luther (Lee J. Cobb). Eve suffers from occasional severe headaches followed by "spells" of memory loss. She cannot remember buying sexy, expensive dresses or going to Atlanta for a week and has started hearing voices. Dr. Luther is flabbergasted when one day, the drab woman transforms into the flirtatious, vibrant "Eve Black"--who insists that she does not have a husband or a daughter. Luther, who has only read of multiple personality syndrome, struggles to treat the confused, scared Eve. Meanwhile, Ralph cannot abide the racy playgirl Eve Black and threatens to take away their daughter. As Luther and Eve desperately search for a cause and cure, a third personality emerges. An absorbing story of the trials of mental illness, the film features a mesmerizing, not-to-be missed performance by Joanne Woodward.
