    Comments about this product:

    This is a comedy. Tony Curtis at his best to keep the patients entertained and relaxed. This is a drama too. Gregory Peck as the doctor, patient and kind, with a sense of humor, but also serious in treatment and care.

    Peck is the head of a psychiatric ward of a WWII stateside military hospital. Tears can well up at the state of some of the patients while watching. All wounds are not physical, traumatic shock or mental stress and fatigue.

    I really liked the performance of Eddie Albert as a patient. Wow! He was so unstable he got a private room and could not be admitted to the general ward to interact with others.

    Bobby Darin and Robert Duvall were patients too. Angie Dickinson as a nurse. I'm very glad they presented this material as a comedy. It is also a good teaching tool for the public. Recommend giving this movie as a gift to any veteran, so they will seek help if they have hidden issues.

    This is a powerful movie and very entertaining.

        Comments about this product:

        the development of the characters' personalities was excellent. thoroughly enjoyed the humor that Tony Curtis brought to the film. Serious issue of mental health and war was presented well as well as how the staff was affected. Wasn't anything I didn't like about the film.
