Captain Newman M.D. DVD


Triple Oscar nominated psychological war film with twists of black humour which is set during World War II. Captain Newman (Gregory Peck) is head of a neuro-psychiatric ward at a military hospital which treats combatants suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Peck delivers one of his best acting performances as an eccentric doctor who will use unconventional tactics to treat his patients and to recruit much needed personnel. We're short of beds, doctors, orderlies, nurses, everything ... except patients! Newman tells Corporal Leibowitz (Tony Curtis), as he browbeats him into becoming a new and very reluctant orderly. Similarly, Newman takes great care to seduce an army nurse (Angie Dickinson), into what she thinks is a romantic date... until he asks her to transfer to Ward 7 instead of taking off her clothes! When Newman s old-school base commander (John Gregory) saddles him with a group of injured Italian POWs because his has the only secure ward in the hospital, and a flock of stray sheep keep invading the hospital, the scene is set for one of the most poignant and funny war films which is a joy to watch.

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.
