George Stevens won an Academy Award for his direction of this legendary film based on Edna Ferber's novel. Featuring an all-star cast including Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, James Dean, Carroll Baker, Dennis Hopper and Sal Mineo, it's about a wealthy Texan who marries a strong-willed beautiful girl. Their adjustments to life on their ranch are interwoven with problems of Mexican workers and an ambitious young ranch hand who becomes an oil tycoon. Recently selected by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 greatest American films of all time, it received nine other Oscar nominations, including Best Actor nods for both Dean and Hudson.
