A Classic Restored: John Huston’s Let There Be Light

The third in the World War II trilogy commissioned from Academy Award®-winning director John Huston by the U.S. Army Signal Corps, Let There Be Light follows the treatment of emotionally traumatized GIs from their admission at a psychiatric hospital to their reentry into civilian life. Today we premiere a high-definition version of the film, which had been suppressed until 1980 but has been preserved and digitally restored by the National Archives Motion Picture Preservation Team. (1946; 58 minutes)
