    Jesse Prince posted a documentary on his blog back in January. The documentary he linked is an hour long. Jesse poses the question of this being a source of Hubbards dianetics.

    The documentary was made in 1945 by John Huston, but the government suppressed it. It was finally released to the general public in 1980.

    I saw that on KQED in the SF Bay Area back about 1982/3, iirc. Interesting doco.

    An eye opening documentary about how psycho-hypnotic-therapy was the treatment model for U.S. WWll era soldiers returning from combat overseas. A great find by Jesse and Gib for posting it here. Here's a couple of articles I think tie in with the documentary.

    I notice in the opening screen-text that the procedures or therapies have been found very useful for acute military purposes. But that for civilian neuroses etc, it is not effective because of the chronic background of the conditions. So Hubbard knew he was selling junk to the public.
