19 May 1999 | HAL-57
| A Coup for Gladys Walton
Now here's a movie with real meat on its bones! Never has a split personality disorder been depicted so well so early on the screen without becoming predictable or campy. And the story is beautifully paced from start to finish.

Gladys Walton scores a coup in the dual role of Joy/Edna. Her portrayal of the young woman victimized by the disorder is stunning. John Sainpolis as the evil doctor, Malcolm McGregor as Joy Fielding's boyfriend, and Etta Lee as Joy/Edna's companion Ah Moy also shine in their respective roles. Blache's direction is most appropriate to the story line. This film is definitely one you will want to see!
