No, I mean,

I saw him, last night,

just before you came

back from the theater.

And again, just now.

But he's just a character

in your novel.

- I know.

You can't...

I know but I saw him.

Darling, you've been

working much too hard.

Your imagination's

playing tricks with you.

Why don't you take the day off

and come up to London with me?

No, no not till I've finished my book.


What is it?

It's Dominick.

He's in there!

Oh, Charles!

No, no, please!

He's over there.

He's sitting in the chair.

There's nobody here.

Didn't you see him move?

He's over there.

Didn't you hear that?

He laughed.

Oh darling, please.

Toast, darling?

No, thank you.

Charles, you really must see a doctor.

But I've got a deadline, I can't.

When the book's finished...

No, now.

How much longer do you think

we can go on like this?


So that's the story, doctor.

What do you think?

What I think doesn't matter.

It's what you think that's important.

What more can I tell you?

A good deal, Mr. Hillier.

I don't understand.


The point of psychiatry is

to help you to understand.

And, that takes time.

I should like to see you regularly.

At least, once a week.

Perhaps you'd have a

word with my receptionist

and make an appointment.

You do think that you can help me?

I'll try.

There's nobody here.

How's it going?

It isn't.

I think there's a storm brewing.

A storm.

Andrews keeps talking

about a storm inside me.

Everything comes from

the inside, apparently.

A projection of my own imagination.

Do you know what he actually

told me at our last session?

He said that when an

author creates a character,

it's like an actor playing a role.

And sometimes, the role takes over.

I shan't do any more work tonight.

You just relax, darling.
