An excellent film which registers strongly on all levels, whether it's in its breathtaking panoramic shots of the dusty Texas plains; the personal, dramatic impact of the story itself, or the resounding message it has to impart.
This movie is a classic!!! If you havent seen it You're cheating yourself.\nThey dont make movies like this anymore because they dont have big enough stars for them.\n\nRock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor and James Dean are FANTASTIC !!!
There are a few moments when the picture's easygoing pace turns into wobbliness, but these are insignificant compared with its many moments of shrewd insight into the lives of amusingly shaded but very recognizable human beings.
Christopher is so good in this quietly charming, Yates-drected tale of four high school graduates trying to decide what to do with their lives that it's a wonder he didn't achieve the heights of co-star Quaid.
