Freud: The Secret Passion DVD (1962)
John Huston's biopic of Sigmund Freud (Montgomery Clift) follows the progress of the father of psychoanalytical psychiatry as he develops the notion that neurosis stems from sexual repression. By treating patients with various issues, including a woman haunted by recurring dreams (Susannah York) and a man with an Oedipus complex (David McCallum), Freud experiences epiphanies that lead to the birth of modern analysis, despite the scorn his theories initially receive from his colleagues. Delivered sealed in case with artwork as shown on our page.
Starring: Montgomery Clift, Susannah York, David McCallum
Viewer Review: "John Huston does a great job telling the story of Freud's discovery of the subconscious and the Oedipus complex -- and turning the plot into a mystery - detective story. Clift gives a sobering, troubled performance as Freud -- perhaps because Clift, like Freud, was haunted by his own demons. This film is in black and white which is very effective, especially in the night and dream sequences. The music and atmosphere suggest vintage TWILIGHT ZONE. This is a fascinating film which reveals Freud in a new light and makes us look at ourselves also in a new light. I highly recommend this movie."
