Freud (1962)

Susannah York as "Cecily Koertner"

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.
