Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre (Susannah York) is an orphan who is hired to serve as a governess at Thornfield, an English manor lorded over by the strict Edward Rochester (George C. Scott). Sinister things start to occur around the manor, but Jane and the temperamental Rochester come to cherish their time together. They fall in love and decide to marry. But Rochester has yet to inform his bride-to-be about a certain matter. And when his secret emerges, Jane must face an enormous challenge.

Freud Poster

Freud

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.
