This film marked Warren Beatty's film debut. He plays Bud Stamper whose family is affluent, and Natalie Wood plays Bud's girlfriend Deanie Loomis who has a nervous breakdown following the end of her romance with Bud. Soap? You bet. But there's some good acting, and the setting of the Midwest in the 1920s helps the atmosphere. Natalie Wood was nominated for an Oscar. Remade (for TV) in 1981.
