An amalgam of three Faulkner short stories, this masterpiece showcases the talent of its two leads as well as other up-and-coming actors.
A sharp-tongued, wry, may-care, as handsome-as-all get-out drifter matches wits with a prim, shy, sophisticated, and lovely schoolteacher whose family just happen to the proprietors of the small Mississippi hamlet through which he is passing.
Repressed desires, family relationships, a slew of barn burnings, etc... it all adds up to one unforgettable and rather humorous conclusion. Equal parts drama/comedy spurned on by Angela Lansbury as a beautiful aging southern belle romanced by (Woodward (Clara's)) father Welles.
A must own for your DVD collection!
