Mental Hospital, Layton Mabrey (1953).

Filmed in and around Central State Hospital in Norman, Oklahoma, Mental Hospital is a University of Oklahoma production which documents the case of a mental patient who is committed by court order and treated for schizophrenia (paranoid type). The film summarizes the treatment of a patient from the time of admission to the hospital to the time of discharge. It also explains the methods used in the treatment of mental diseases and stresses the value of occupational therapy in rehabilitating patients, as well as the need for an atmosphere of calm and security.

According to the writer, Dwight Swain, the ‘patients’ featured in the film were played by producers, crew and friends, since actual patients weren’t legally competent to sign talent releases.
