Montgomery Clift (Suddenly, Last Summer) and Susannah York (Images) star in this examination of the early career of Sigmund Freud from director John Huston (The Maltese Falcon, Fat City).

The film charts Freud's journey from graduating medical school, to his early investigations into hysteria, hypnosis, and the analysis of dreams, and on to his formulation of the radical concepts which would underpin his psychoanalytic theory, scandalise the medical world, and change the face of the twentieth century.

Born from an epic screenplay by the philosopher and writer Jean-Paul Sartre, the film was praised for its inventive and expressionistic attempts to represent the workings of the unconscious mind.
