Oscar-winning 1948 drama about mental illness, hailed on its release as brave and groundbreaking. Olivia de Havilland stars as Virginia Cunningham, a young woman with an outwardly normal life, married to a loyal, kind husband, Robert (Mark Stevens). When Virginia's behaviour becomes increasingly erratic, her husband seeks professional help, and Virginia is referred to the state mental institution, a harsh, overcrowded hospital where residents who do not agree to 'realign their thinking' are threatened with the 'snake pit', an open ward to which the most severe cases are consigned. The story is told in flashback as Virginia, who on her arrival at the asylum cannot remember how she came to be there, gradually recounts her sad tale to the one compassionate member of staff in the place, psychiatrist Dr Mark Kick (Leo Glenn)

Die Schlangengrube( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine junge Frau befindet sich nach einem psychischen Zusammenbruch in einem labilen Zustand zwischen Irrsinn und Normalität und macht in einer Anstalt eine Schocktherapie durch, die sie langsam gesunden läßt. Konventionelle Konflikte, aber gute Menschenschilderung und psychologische Sorgfalt in einem ehrenwerten Drama, das sich - ein wenig zu melodramatisch - um Verständnis für seelisch Kranke bemüht. Die Erkenntnisse und Methoden der Psychotherapie haben sich seit der Entstehungszeit allerdings weiterentwickelt. [film-dienst]
