“Miss Pat Collins” — The Documentary

She was the most famous female hyp­no­tist ever. She appeared in four cable net­work spe­cials, numer­ous talk shows and game shows, at least four dif­fer­ent TV pro­grams as her self, and one movie appear­ance. She had her own club on the famed Sun­set Strip in Hol­ly­wood and was friends with numer­ous Hol­ly­wood per­son­al­i­ties. In between that, she also had a suc­cess­ful hyp­nother­a­py prac­tice and instruct­ed oth­er pro­fes­sion­al hyp­no­tists. Very few, if any, did more to dis­pel the fal­lac­i­es about hyp­no­sis dur­ing her life.

She was Pat Collins.

No oth­er hyp­no­tist had such an impact on the pop­u­lar cul­ture, yet few peo­ple now remem­ber her. Well, now that should change.

Now a doc­u­men­tary on the life of Pat Collins is avail­able for view­ing. It includes mate­r­i­al from her movie and TV appear­ances in a doc­u­men­tary about her life. Enclosed here is the trail­er for the documentary:

Pat Collins — More Pictures

I dis­cov­ered a cou­ple of images of stage hyp­no­tist Pat Collins that I want to pass along here.

The first (above) is a pub­lic­i­ty pho­to of Pat Collins: you can see her sig­na­ture on the right.

The sec­ond (above) is a shot from her appear­ance on “What’s My Line?” before she became the sen­sa­tion she was. She appeared on the pro­gram on May 7, 1961, Sea­son 12 Episode 36 EPISODE #563, as a con­tes­tant. How­ev­er, I have not been able to deter­mine whether she stumped the pan­el or not.
