Storyline

This Passing Parade entry tells the story of Dr. Joseph Goldberger (1874-1929), a Hungarian immigrant who devoted his life to finding the cause of pellagra, a disease that killed hundreds of thousands in the southern United States. Although the medical community believed that the condition was caused by a virus, Goldberger proved that a healthy diet was the cure. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@verizon.net>

Interesting story told in a dated manner
18 March 2004 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

Just saw this film on TCM the other night and found the facts of the story quite moving. The key points were well re-enacted and the story moved right along keeping my attention the entire time.

Told in the manner of its day, the scenes were re-enacted without dialogue but with an "enthusiastic" narrator voice over and "stirring" music. Yes, today the style appears laughably dated and overzealous but still the story is well told and eminently watchable if allowance is made for this.

The director of this film went on to such classics as "High Noon (1952)", "From Here to Eternity (1953)" and "Day of the Jackal, The (1973)" but its films such as this that he learned his craft.

Any serious film student should see this.
