David and Lisa is a small independent American film directed by Frank Perry. It is based on the second story in the novel Jordi, Lisa and David by Theodore Isaac Rubin; the screenplay, written by Frank Perry's wife Eleanor Rosenfeld, tells the story of a bright young man suffering from a severe case of obsessive-compulsive disorder. This lands him in a residential treatment center, in which he meets a girl with dissociative identity disorder called Lisa, whom he learns to understand. The film is shot in black-and-white, and it runs for 93 minutes. It cost $183,000 and returned over $1,000,000 in theatrical rentals during its first week in release. David and Lisa earned Frank Perry a nomination for the 1963 Academy Award for Directing and one for Eleanor Perry for her Screenplay. It was adapted as a stage play in 1967, but only played for a short time, and was remade as a television movie in 1998 starring Lukas Haas, Sidney Poitier, and Brittany Murphy.
