Description

In 1958, John Huston asked Jean-Paul Sartre to write a script for a movie about Sigmund Freud. The Freud Scenario, found among Sartre's papers after his death, is the result. A fluent portrait of a man engaged in a personal and intellectual struggle that was to change the course of twentieth-century thought, the script was too challenging and - at a projected seven hours - too long for a Hollywood audience. The script remains an unrealized classic and a testament to two of the most influential minds in modern history.
