John Huston, at the outset of his screenwriting career, helped to transfer Barre Lyndon's British play from St John's Wood to Park Avenue. It's an amusing anecdote about a psychiatrist whose research for a book on the criminal psyche leads him to burglary and murder (very House of Games). The characterisations are all a bit heavy-handed, but the denouement is a doozy, with the doc in the dock desperately pleading the validity of his work, even though that would make him responsible for his actions in the eyes of the law.
