Taylor, Dean, Hopper, Hudson

A sprawling family saga, with James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, Dennis Hopper and Rock Hudson – what more could you ask for? The performances are outstanding, and the Texas landscape is just plain beautiful.

Let’s not forget the film also deals interestingly with both racial and class differences.

On the other hand where I was slightly disappointed was that the scenes and pretty much the whole film was a bi... read more

Since it was the last movie starring James Dean that I hadn't seen so far, I was really eager to see this flick. Well, even though it turned out to be pretty good, I can't say it really blew me away though. I mean, there was some very good stuff and it could have been a great movie but it didn't completely worked in my opinion. First of all, this movie will be forever remembered for Dean's perform... read more

Description: Sprawling, epic tale of a wealthy Texas rancher and his wife, their descendants and their life together over 25 years. Bick Benedict met his future wife Leslie while on a trip East to buy breeding stock, returning home with a bride. Living on a half-million acre ranch takes some getting used to for Leslie as does the rough and tumble lifestyle. They have children who have their own minds and are apt to disappoint their parents over their life choices. As Leslie says at one point, you can't live their lives for them you can only raise them. Bick Benedict's rival is a former ranch hand, Jett Rink, who inherits a tract of land from ... (more)

Indeed, the movie was in fact about Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson's love story and family life and, in spite of Dean's effort to steal the show, his complex character didn't have much impact after all.
