Unfortunately, a movie which will rarely be seen.
8 March 2003 | by (St. Catharines. Canada.) – See all my reviews

The film deals with the problem of coming to terms with life after the war (WW2). Arthur Kennedy plays the role of a soldier who is blinded and must face the grim prospect of adapting to this condition. His despair is even more apparent when he has to learn to shave himself, something once so simple is now a daily reminder of his plight. The film underlines the trajic consequences for the soldiers who did not come out of the conflict unscathed. Kennedy gives a first rate performance as do the rest of the cast, Julie Adams, his girl friend and Peggy Dow who assists in his rehabilitation. James Edwards plays the role of a coloured veteran who has to endure the racial issue which was still very dominant, and he once again gives a first rate performance. Edwards was an actor who did not receive the acclaim to which I thought he was worthy of. Jim Bachus another, excellent actor, plays the role of Kennedy`s father and he to excells. A superb movie, should be shown more often.
