Depression-era Dodson, Mississippi, is particularly devastated with the arrival of Owen Legate (Robert Redford), a railroad official with a pocketful of pink slips for the rail yard employees. Natalie Wood is captivating as Alva Starr, the coquettish town flirt with plenty of big plans but nowhere to go until Legate appears on her doorstep. Their ensuing affair enrages Alva's distant, uncaring mother (Kate Reid), and ignites a town's revenge.

Well done and managed to keep much that was great about the play.

Another Tennessee Williams slow-motion human train wreck redeemed only partially by the fine acting of Natalie Wood.

For some unknown reason the new Biblio-Commons format refuses to list the original release date of a movie but only the 2013 date of the DVD. I had to Google to find this movie first came out in 1966.
The old format always showed it.
