1967 · N.p.
Based on the 1965 novel by Bert and Katya Gilden.
A story of racial prejudice and land ownership in the deep south in 1946. Perhaps director Otto Preminger's worst well-cast flop of the latter part of his career, a legendary flop which came under fire from almost every angle.
Flm debut of actor Faye Dunaway, who was so dissatisfied with the experience that she later claimed Preminger didn't "know anything at all about the process of acting" and sued the director to break a five-film contract she had signed with him.
Set and shot on location in Georgia.
8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, with light edgewear, creasing, and annotations in holograph wax pencil in margins.
