Captain Newman (Gregory Peck) heads up a chaotic military hospital treating post-traumatic stress disorder. "We're short of beds, doctors, orderlies, nurses, everything ... except patients!" Newman tells Corporal Leibowitz (Tony Curtis), as he browbeats him to sign up as an orderly. Newman also seduces 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! One of the most poignant and funny war films - a joy to watch.
