Has any one watched this movie ? The consultant for the hypnosis used in the film was Gil Boyne. Gil Boyne founded the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners and the Hypnotism Training Institute in Glendale California, both of which still flourish today. Because Gil personally trained Bergerac, the hypnosis demonstrated in the film, in particular the live performance segments is very accurate. Although the film is a work of fiction, the hypnosis is very much the same as used in hypnosis stage shows touring the world today. Gil also performed live shows between screenings of the film at the opening at the Golden Gate Theater in San Francisco and went on a press tour to promote the movie appearing on numerous T.V. news and talk shows performing live hypnosis demonstrations.
