Tagline: Excitement - Movie of the Year! Suspense! Action! Adventure! You have never seen a motion picture like it!

Plot: Based on the play by Arthur Laurents, this film recounts the story of a young black private who suffered a nervous breakdown. Peter Moss' condition was induced by his experience on a reconnaissance mission during World War II and by a lifetime of racial discrimination. Crippled by rage and trauma, he has developed psychosomatic paralysis. But if he can overcome his anger and frustration, he might just walk again. One of the first bold stances taken on the race issue in Hollywood, though tame by today's standards, the universal message is obviously still very relevant and worthwile.
