Ogunquit Performing Arts continues the 14th season of the Classic Film Series with the showing of The Three Faces of Eve on Sunday November 2, 2014, 2 pm at the Dunaway Center in Ogunquit.

The Three Faces of Eve, the second film in the 2014-15 Classic Film Series presented by Ogunquit Performing Arts, will be shown at 2 pm on Sunday November 2, 2014 at the Dunaway Center, 23 School Street in Ogunquit. Admission is free. The Three Faces of Eve is the 1957 film about a woman with multiple personalities and is based on a true story told in a best-selling book of the same name written by the two psychiatrists who handled her case. Joanne Woodward plays the leading role of Eve (Eve White, Eve Black, and Jane). The cast includes her husband David Wayne (David White), Lee J. Cobb (Dr. Luther), Edwin Jerome (Dr. Day), Ken Scott (Earl), Alistair Cooke (narrator), and Vince Edwards (Soldier)

Eve White is a timid wife and mother who suffers from severe headaches, emotional upset, and forgetfulness. She is sent to see a psychiatrist, Dr. Luther, and during one of these sessions, a wild and fun-loving Eve Black emerges. With Eve Black on the loose, Eve White’s husband leaves her and abandons their daughter, Bonnie. In much of the film, Dr. Luther is trying to understand and deal with these two personalities. Under hypnosis at one session, a third personality appears . . . the relatively stable Jane.

Joanne Woodward won the Academy Award for Best Actress. The original psychiatrists who wrote the book on MPD (multiple personality disorder) also shared the writing credits for the film.
