THE SNAKE PIT (1948) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Leif Erickson, Olivia de Havilland, Glenn Langan, Leo Genn, Celeste Holm, Beulah Bondi, Mark Stevens
Directed By:  Anatole Litvak
Composed By:  Alfred Newman

“A fascinating and deeply moving film…Olivia de Havilland does a brilliant, heart-rending job as the central, guilt-ridden patient, and Leo Genn is remarkably fine as her shrewd, sympathetic psychiatrist.”
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

“Picture probes into the processes of mental illness with a razor-sharp forthrightness…Clinical detail is stated with matter-of-fact clarity and becomes an important part of the melodramatics.”
– Variety

Director Anatole Litvak’s classic adaptation of Mary Jane Ward’s book, The Snake Pit (1948) is a harrowing portrait of a young woman (Olivia de Havilland, in a stunning performance) whose life is torn apart when she suffers a mental breakdown and is admitted to an institution. A plea for understanding, a critique of contemporary conditions and treatments, and a superb melodrama, this is a film that both horrifies and touches. Also featuring a wonderful performance by Leo Genn as a shrewd, sympathetic psychiatrist.
