The Ninth Configuration (Twinkle, Twinkle, Killer Kane)
In this film, Army psychiatrist Stacy Keach tries to minister to the patients in a military mental hospital. The fact that the hospital is located in a brooding castle is hardly conducive to speedy recoveries. Nor does a barroom brawl indicate that Keach's approach to mental health is particularly workable.

"unusual dark comedy, with stacy keach at his best."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"Brilliant, funny, moving examination of faith from Blatty."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"At its worst, it is supposed to be profound; at its best it's amusing"
‑ Shane Burridge, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"An allegory that's so impossibly overstuffed that it can't help but explode"
‑ Jeremy Heilman, MovieMartyr.com
"Should be the centerpiece of a Stacy Keach shrine somewhere . . . should one ever be erected."
