Not in a decade that gave us Nicholas Ray’s subterfuge of teenage ennui (Rebel Without a Cause), two of Billy Wilder’s naughtiest comedies (The Seven Year Itch, Some Like It Hot), and numerous Tennessee Williams adaptations (A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof being the cream of... read more

Description: An award-winning film adaptation of the William Inge play. Hal Carter is an arrogant drifter who sets off dramatic fireworks when he visits a quiet Kansas town to see an old friend. Before long he has managed to steal Madge Owens, the most attractive girl in town, away from his pal. Much of the drama takes place in the midst of the town's annual Labor Day picnic. Among the many other memorable characters in the film are a spinster school teacher who desperately longs for the security of marriage, and Madge's jealous younger sister, Millie. A study of the impact of a handsome, virile and egotistical drifter on the lives of fiv ... (more)

my half assed 2018 movie diary (40 movies items)

" This is one of those movies that was daring in its time, but comes off as sappy and overblown now. It's another one of those 1950s "whiny drifter comes into small town and fucks shit up" little whirlwinds. ex: The Chase, The Wild One, The Long Hot Summer, A Face in the Crowd, Rebel Without a Cause, The Fugitive Kind, etc etc etc William Holden looks a way bit past his prime though he was like 37 in this rip... He's supposed to be smoulderingly sexual or some shit and have all the chicks in"
