This film examines the power of the mind to withstand solitary confinement, brutality, and the ceaseless psychological attacks of trained Communist interrogators.
Four cases are examined. First, Dr. Edith Bone, who spent seven years in solitary confinement gaols in Hungary; then William Oatis, the American journalist, who confessed to charges of espionage in the Czechoslovakian spy case; three American airmen who were involved in the Chinese attempt to make them confess to charges of germ warfare during the Korean War; and finally Robert Ford, the British wireless operator in Tibet, captured by the Chinese, who was subjected to the entire lengthy process of Communist indoctrination.
Introduced by Walter Cronkite.
Produced by the Columbia Broadcasting System in the series 'The Twentieth Century'
