Question: I'm looking for the name of a movie starring Gregory Peck as a psychiatrist in a mental hospital, and Tony Curtis as an orderly. I'm trying to find it on video. Lisa
Flickchick: The movie is the blandly titled Captain Newman, M.D. (1963), a dark comedy/drama set during WWII in a psychiatric field hospital. Gregory Peck is head psychiatrist Captain Newman, Tony Curtis is indeed his orderly and singer-turned-actor Bobby Darin is one of his most troubled patients. Adapted from the novel by Leo Rosten, this was the last screenplay written by Phoebe and Henry Ephron (the parents of writers and directors Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron) and it earned three Oscar nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Sound and Best Supporting Actor (Darin). It's available for sale on major online retail sites like Amazon, so you shouldn't have any trouble buying a copy.
