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

Fred Zinnemann directed short about Dr. Joseph Goldberger, an immigrant who found the cure for pellagra while other doctors fought him thinking he was wrong. These docudrama shorts are among my favorites and this here is one of the better films. The film does a great job telling the story of the disease and how it was treated and only takes 11-minutes in doing so. Zinnemann does a very good job with the story and gets some nice drama out as well.
If you're interested in seeing this film then keep your eyes on Turner Classic Movies.
