Movies: Casting for "Freud," Starring Montgomery Clift, Now Complete

Aug. 17, 1961 - Larry Parks and Susan Kohner will appear in John Huston's biographical drama film "Freud," in support of Montgomery Clift (left) and Susannah York (right). The film is based on the life of Austrian neurologist and founder of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud, played by Mr. Clift. Miss York plays Cecily Koertner, a composite patient who combines features of several of Dr. Freud's actual patients. Mr. Huston was interested in casting Marilyn Monroe as Cecily, but she turned down the offer.
