Restored John Huston Film Explores Psychological Wounds of War In 1945, at the request of the US Army, Hollywood's great director John Huston made a documentary about soldiers recovering from the psychological wounds of World War II. But the Army re-made it , and then suppressed the original for 35 years. Now, when Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a household word, a restored version is available on-line. Film historian and UC Davis English professor Scott Simmon wrote the essay released with the restored film on the website of the National Film Preservation Foundation .

Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
