Virginia Cunningham (de Havilland) appeared to have an idyllic life-a nice home, a loving husband and prospects for a writing career. But something just wasn't right. Confusion, doubts about her husband's love, even violent outbursts led Virginia to be confined to a mental institution. She is put through a series of brutal treatments, including being forced into close quarters with patients whose disorders far exceed her own. The belief-the shock of the experience will return her to sanity. De Havilland's gripping turn as a woman desperately trying to return to normalcy in The Snake Pit is supported with an outstanding ensemble cast, including Leo Genn, Celeste Holm and Mark Stevens.
