Henry Thomas (Steve McQueen), a rockabilly singer on parole for stabbing another man, tries to settle down with his wife, Georgette (Lee Remick), and their daughter. But tough times and Thomas's old grudge against the woman who raised him conspire to ruin his dream of becoming a successful songwriter. Horton Foote's screenplay from his own stage play THE TRAVELING LADY graces this story of a man at odds with himself who is unable to resist destroying his family. Lee Remick glows with quiet strength as a Southern woman and wife determined to see the bright side of things and hold on to hope with all of her strength.
