Virginia Cunningham (Olivia de Havilland) is a mentally disturbed woman whose loving husband, Robert (Mark Stevens), realizes that she needs professional help. Robert puts Virginia into a mental institution where she comes under the care of Dr. Mark Kik (Leo Genn) who devotes time to her while trying to keep his hospital from becoming a "Snake Pit." This film deftly handles the realities of mental illness–including hospitalization, treatment, and cure–as it follows the breakdown of Virginia. Oscar nominations included Best Picture, Actress (de Havilland), and Director.
