Stairway to Light (1945)

This John Nesbitt's Passing Parade short tells the story of 18th Century French physician Dr. Philippe Pinel, who initiated enlightened, humane treatment of the mentally ill.


It's unbelievable how horrible people with mental disorders were treated in the past. We've come a long way since then but we still have very far to go.
