Lizzie in the newspapers

In 1957, Eleanor Parker starred in the camp classic Lizzie. Based on a book by author Shirley Jackson, Lizzie tells the story of a woman with multiple personalities. This allowed Eleanor Parker to really have fun with a triple role, though most of the film deals with battle between her weak, demure personality and her bad girl personality. Lizzie was made Bryna Productions, the production company owned by Kirk Douglas, and as such was afforded a wide release and a fair amount of newspaper coverage. The following are some examples of newspaper ads and articles concerning Eleanor Parker and the movie.

Here are three original newspaper advertisements for Lizzie:
