Description
Director George Stevens’ sweeping saga of family conflict and social consciousness based on Edna Ferber’s best seller was nominated for 10 Academy Awards®, with a win for Stevens*. Starring Rock Hudson as rancher Bick Benedict, Elizabeth Taylor as his wife Leslie and James Dean (in his final film role) as nouveau oil baron Jett Rink, this tale of three generations of Texans is both grand and “as intimate as a letter from home” (Sam Lesner, Chicago Daily News).

          Comments about this product:

          The writers of each article showed outstanding insight into the complex world of James Dean, answering numerous questions for me, most surprising and highly entertaining. Eartha Kitt and even J.D. himself predicted his "early" demise. Especially intriguing are the reports of a ghostly race car speeding in the area of Dean's deadly accident and the demise of those who purchased various parts of his car! How interesting also that the other driver walked away with only scratches ad bruises whereas Dean suffered multiple major injuries that caused his death. If only he had won his seatbelt, the outcome MAY have been different. How tragic! How very unfortunate! Dean lived fast, broke the rules, and did it HIS WAY. He HAD to cram in everything he could as quickly as he could because deep down inside he KNEW his end was always right around the corner. I regret that he was right, and 60 years later I'M STILL HIS BIGGEST FAN.

              Love TCM and that is my go to station for "good and excellent movies" and there content. Anyone can watch TCM and with many of the old movies they can learn from them as well.

                      This is a beautifully written and presented movie.
                      Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor are wonderful,
                      charismatic figures who play off each other in an entertaining and delightful way. I've watched this
                      movie several times and always see something I missed before! This is a really good movie to own and enjoy at your leisure. So glad I can do that!
