Rating: B -- In his second film, scripted by William Inge, Warren Betty gives one of his strongest and most sensual performances as the amoral youth in a role that thematically resembles Hud (played by Paul Newman). Full Review

Not since certain German films of the Twenties have I seen such overuse of camera angles, such cluttered sets, and such a profusion of props. Full Review

Description by

Oscar-nominee Brandon de Wilde ("Shane") co-stars in this evocative coming-of-age story about an adolescent boy who discovers that his older brother, played by Oscar-winner Warren Beatty ("Bullworth," "Love Affair"), is a shallow wreck of a man. Featuring Academy Award-winners Eva Marie Saint ("Superman Returns," "On the Waterfront") and Karl Malden ("A Streetcar Named Desire," TV's "The Streets of San Francisco"), and Oscar-nominee Angela Lansbury (TV's "Murder, She Wrote," "Beauty and the Beast"). Directed by Emmy-winner John Frankenheimer ("Ronin," "The Manchurian Candidate").

Product Description:

Playwright William Inge adapted James Leo Herlihy's novel for John Frankenheimer's film which stars Warren Beatty as Berry-Berry Willart. When the young man wires his family home in Ohio from Florida for $200 to save his ailing business, his worshipful 15-year-old brother Clinton (Brandon De Wilde), arrives with the money, only to find that his brother needs it to bail himself out of jail for beating a hooker. Clinton would like to stay with Berry-Berry, but his brother sends him home, the last place the restless teenager wants to be. Conditions there improve, however, when a beautiful boarder, Echo O'Brien (Eve Marie Saint) arrives to teach school, charming Clinton's parents, the aggressively gossipy Annabel (Angela Lansbury) and the amiably alcoholic Ralph (Karl Malden), and completely captivating the boy. Berry-Berry returns, and his overwhelming sexual magnetism soon works its magic on Echo. For the first time in his life, it almost seems as though the callous womanizer has fallen in love, but complications arise, and his true nature reasserts itself. An overwrought blend of Inge and Tennessee Williams cliches, the film boasts a powerhouse clicking on all cylinders, and an effectively moody score by Alex North (STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, SPARTACUS).


Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: March 28, 1962.
  • Shooting location: Key West, Florida.
  • Actress Evans Evans is Frankenheimer's wife.
  • While shooting in Key West, the director wanted a genuine brothel for a scene early in the film, so he got the city to reopen one that the police had recently closed. The location was so rank that Frankenheimer ended up using incense from a local church so that they could shoot.
