NotesB/W. A soldier who has been blinded in WWII returns to civvy street. From the novel Lights Out by Baynard Kendrick. Mary Reese writes: The book LIGHTS OUT was a labour of love for Baynard Kendrick award winning author and creator of Duncan Maclain the well known blind detective of the 1940's. The movie BRIGHT VICTORY is a well written movie adaptation of that book. (By the way Baynard Kendrick is one of the founders of the Blinded Veterans Association.) Arthur Kennedy does a superlative job of portraying Larry Nevins a recently blinded soldier. The story is a drama of how a solder blinded in World War II, and rehabilitated at the veteran's hospital adjusts to life and blindness back in the United States. Many of the actual events of the story are based on events that did happen to blinded soldiers. It might also be fun while watching this 1951 drama to note several now well known actors in the cast at the beginnings of their career. These include Rock Hudson, Jerry Paris, Hugh Reilly, Richard Egan and Will Geer and Julie Adams.
