CAPTAIN NEWMAN, M.D. is a drama, from 1963, about a neuropsychiatric ward on a US base during World War Two.

Violence

In one intense scene, a man remembers the trauma of a plane crash, thrashing around in his bed and saying things like, "He's got no head. Bring back his head."

There is a scene in which two men wrestle over a knife, the fight resulting in a small cut to one man's cheekbone.

The film also contains a suicide scene, in which a man jumps off a building. However, the impact is not shown and there is no injury detail.

There are also some mild sex references, and cigarette and cigar smoking throughout.
