What films were Kansas Citians watching back in 1963? A new film series gives contemporary moviegoers a chance to relive the romance, drama, and thrills of 50 years past.

Gregory Peck plays the title character, a military psychiatrist running a stateside mental ward during World War II. Faced with a paltry budget and superiors who dubious that such a thing as "battle fatigue" even exists, Newman relies on his nurse (Angie Dickinson) and a hustling assistant (Tony Curtis) to find the means to treat his shellshocked patients (played by the likes of Bobby Darin and Robert Duvall).
