"Let There Be Light"


Description: To explore the psychological rehabilitation of WWII soldiers injured in battle, Academy Award winning director John Huston took a Signal Corps camera crew to Mason General Hospital on Long Island, New York. The resulting film, steeped with images of suffering, is not only one of the greatest films ever made on the subject of war's impact on the human spirit, but a tribute to the raw courage of the men themselves.
