Olivia de Havilland earned an Oscar nomination for her work in this stark drama as Virginia Cunningham, a married young woman whose idyllic life falls apart when she sinks into a world of psychosis and is eventually placed in an institution. Adapted from Mary Jane Ward's gripping autobiography, Anatole Litvak's portrait of mental illness examines the treatment of mentally unstable patients in the late 1940s and '50s.
