Synopsis

Gregory Peck, Tony Curtis and Angie Dickinson star in this US war drama. During the Second World War, Captain Josiah Newman (Peck) heads up a neuro-psychiatric ward in a military hospital in the Arizona Desert. As he treats patients with severe disorders ranging from shell shock and schizophrenia to catatonia and post-traumatic stress disorder, Captain Newman tries to recruit others including nurse Francie Corum (Dickinson) to his staff but it seems he faces an uphill battle for many to accept his work.
