Hello folks,
I hope that those of you who have cable (and I hope all of you have cable)
caught John Huston's wacky _Freud_ (I'm tempted to append "The Movie") on
AMC these past few days.  It's quite a remarkable movie, and apart from
Bob Dorian's (sp?) comments about the script debates and nutty Monty
Clift playing nutty Dr. Freud, I know little about it.
So I ask you all: does anyone know the story behind this movie?  Why
did Huston put it together?  It is quite a relic of the age of American
Freud, and Huston himself reads the bizarre introduction (as we peer
at what looks like the cosmos or the background of a black and white
impressionist painting, he tells us about the three modern geniuses:
Copernicus, Darwin, and Freud).  Anyways, enough of all this: any
info out there?
