The Quest

Directed by Stanley Jackson - 1958.

This short film is a re-enactment of the critical year in Dr. Frederick
Banting's life when he discovered insulin for the treatment of diabetes at
the University of Toronto. It depicts the odds against which he and his
assistant, Charles Best, worked; the scepticism of other doctors and the
final victory that gave thousands of diabetics hope for a healthier life.

Produced by the
National Film Board of Canada (NFB).
