Directed by Mark Robson
From Mark Robson, the acclaimed director of The Bridges at Toko-Ri, The Harder They Fall and Peyton Place, comes this searing drama starring Arthur Kennedy (Boomerang) in a brilliant, Oscar-nominated role. During World War II, Sergeant Larry Nevins (Kennedy) is blinded by enemy fire and lands in a military hospital with African-American soldier Joe Morgan (James Edwards, Home of the Brave) and attending nurse Judy Greene (Peggy Dow, Shakedown). Though he’s engaged to a young woman (Julie Adams, Bend of the River) back home, Larry finds himself falling for Judy. Meanwhile, his casual racism damages his friendship with Joe. On the long and painful road to recovery, Larry begins to realize how much he truly cares for Judy…and how wrong he was to judge others by their race. Will Geer (Broken Arrow), Nana Bryant (Harvey), Jim Backus (TV’s Gilligan’s Island), Richard Egan (The 300 Spartans), Murray Hamilton (Jaws) and Rock Hudson (The Tarnished Angels) add stellar support to this deeply moving film about one man’s redemption through courage, care and love.
