Captain Newman MD (1963)
This a serious and Harrowing tale of the psychological traumas suffered by American Servicemen .. and Gregory Peck as the struggling Doctor trying to mend damaged minds.. I find it difficult to understand why this Film has been categorised as 'Comedy' when clearly it isn't..!! Especially Bobby Darrin, delivers an outstanding performance as Corporal Jim Tompkins .. I would put this film up there with to 'To Kill a Mocking Bird ' -an outstanding performance from Gregory Peck .. There is NO comedy in this film .. the film deals direcly with the consequences of Horror in Warfare.. especially the Psychological trauma of the soldiers who survive, when they have witnessed the death of their buddies at first hand.. A film way before it's time .. -this is NOT a comedy.. but a deeply moving, serious film..
