Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Blinded in the war, a soldier (Arthur Kennedy) faces another kind of battle in attempting to adjust to his disability: first in hospital, then back home, where his girlfriend (Julia Adams) is waiting for him. Further emotional complications arise through his relationship with a girl (Peggy Dow) he meets while in hospital. A moving, if sentimental drama, directed by Mark Robson, is lent added interest by its insight into the rehabilitation methods for the blind, while Kennedy gives a superbly convincing performance that earned him a deserved Oscar nomination.
