Angie Dickinson, Gregory Peck, Tony Curtis, Eddie Albert, James Gregory, Robert Duvall, Dick Sargent, and Bobby Darin are among the stars that make the wonderful (but, frustratingly, not very well-known) Captain Newman, M.D. extra special and highly entertaining.
Directed by David Miller, Captain Newman, M.D. (1963) is a war drama that also has many comedic elements to it. It reminds me a great deal of MASH in this regard.
If you’ve never seen this one OR if it’s been awhile, I hope you’ll find it and spend a little time with a very, very talented cast.
You can find Captain Newman, M.D. on dvd on Amazon.
