Synopsis

In this tale of the fading West, Paul Newman takes centre stage as the ne'er-do-well son of a Texas rancher while Patricia Neal's portrayal of their sassy housekeeper earned her the Best Actress Oscar. Although Larry McMurtry's story is ripe with moral conflict and sexual tension - themes he would revisit in The Last Picture Show - director Martin Ritt maintains a perfect mood and pace without slipping into melodrama.
