Editorial Reviews

Gregory Peck leads an all-star cast in Captain Newman, M.D., a realistic look at life and love inside a stateside military hospital's psychiatric ward during World War II. The Academy Award nominated comedy-drama follows the affable Captain Newman as he uses both humor and compassion to reach patients whose wartime injuries plague their minds instead of their bodies. Co-starring Tony Curtis, Angie Dickinson, Eddie Albert and Bobby Darin, this critically-acclaimed film is just what the doctor ordered!

5.0 out of 5 stars Captain Newman, M.D. May 22, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
While its true that "To Kill a Mockingbird" overshadows "Captain Newman, M.D." in the popular consciousness of Gregory Peck's work, I believe the latter ranks among his best work. A psychologist in charge of a stateside U.S. Army Air Corps mental hospital, Captain Newman and his staff struggle to treat aviators shattered by their combat experiences in the European Theater of Operations. The supporting cast is excellent, and while there's plenty of humor in "Captain Newman", the script doesn't shy away from the wrenching impact of war upon the human psyche. Look for young Robert Duvall as a speechless veteran in a small part that, ironically, reprises the role he had in "To Kill a Mockingbird". This classic oughta be available on DVD!

4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent comedy-drama May 30, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
A precursor of sorts to "M*A*S*H" in that it takes a somewhat critical view of the military establishment, "Captain Newman M.D." is an intelligent comedy-drama with Gregory Peck as a military psychiatrist beset by a variety of troubled patients, most notably a traumatized corporal played by singer Bobby Darin who received a well-deserved best supporting actor Oscar nomination for his splendid work here. Peck is good, too, bringing his trademark blend of stoic pride and quiet compassion to the title role. The comedy, most of it provided by conman Tony Curtis, doesn't always blend smoothly with the drama, but the cast keeps this generally absorbing film on a mostly steady track throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Gregory Peck's best.. January 16, 2005
By Zack H.
Format:VHS Tape
and yet, this SUPERB film isn't on DVD! ARGH!!!!

Dr. Josiah Newman (Gregory Peck) runs the psychiatric unit of a U.S. Military Hospital during WWII. Short of help, Newman coerces newly arrived neurotic orderly Jackson Leibowitz (Tony Curtis) to work in his ward. Leibowitz's scheming & humor quickly turns life inside the ward upside down. Newman, while amused, tries to maintain a semblance of order. Newman's other recruit to the ward is nurse Lt. Francie Corum (Angie Dickinson). Corum is at first shocked by what she sees in the ward, but admires the compassionate & effective way in which Newman deals with each of his patients. Together Newman & Corum help a variety of patients with war related psychological traumas, while they themselves struggle with the dilema of healing these soldiers so they can be sent back into battle to face possible death.

At the time of the writing of this review, you can only get this on VHS (if you're lucky), and catch it on AMC. I really wish this was on DVD. I'd buy it in a HEARTBEAT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gregory Peck's Captain Newman, M.D. June 1, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I've reviewed Gregory Peck's Twelve O'Clock High (see that in Amazon.com), which I argue was really based on Viscount Air Marshall T. Harris ("Bomber" Harris) - see my review of the latter. Gregory Peck has a habit of doing only Class Act movies, which for the benefit of the "Cool Alpha-Wave" generation means Only the Best. Not many people recall now that Captain Newman, M.D. was based on a real story - the story of Beaumont Military Hospital in Beaumont, Texas (near El Paso). I've argued in many of my reviews for greater public funding for the U.S. Veterans Administration, and Captain Newman, M.D. is better than all of my arguments. There really were and are devoted Army Psychiatrists like Captain Newman - a true Man for All Seasons, and devoted and ingenious assistants like his, and perhaps most important, Veterans in and out of the hospitals who gave their lives and their health for us.

3.0 out of 5 stars RIP Tony Curtis October 1, 2010
Format:DVD
Since Tony Curtis recently passed away, I thought I would review one of his strong performances. Although Capt Newman MD stars Gregory Peck and Angie Dickinson, Tony Curtis steals the entire film from both stars. As army orderly Labowitz, his is the standout role and portrayal of a hypochondriacal orderly in an army psychiatric hospital, working in support of and sometimes in advance of his boss, Dr Newman. Newman tries to help soldiers who have developed mental illness as a result of their war time experiences. His job is to put these guys back together so they can go out and finish WWII.

As I remember, from Leo Rosten's novel, Labowitz is originally from Chicago, however Curtis draws on his own background and makes Labowitz a skeptical, cynical, brash, New Yorker, whose language is liberally peppered with Yiddishisms and other colorful expressions. Initially put off by the mental patients in his charge he comes to see them as his patients for whom he will go to great lengths. He scrounges up better food for them, he steals the top of the CO's Christmas tree to make his ward merrier, he steals a colleague's weekly salami package to give to the men, he uses the money Newman gives him to buy a Christmas tree on presents for his patients, and otherwise makes the ward a colorful, warm place for Newman's psychiatic cases to convalesce. Labowitz believes in Newman so much that he hustles patients for him from other non-psychiatric wards.

Although Curtis is the best thing about the film, Peck seems right as the reflective, patient Newman who battles the army in order to do the best for his charges. Robert Duvall, Bobby Darin, and Eddie Albert are the patients whose stories are fully developed in the movie and all three are really good in their parts.
