Description by OLDIES.com:
Libby (Ingrid Bergman) is the bored, middle-aged wife of college professor Roger Meredith (Fritz Weaver). Going on sabbatical, he takes Libby to Tennessee's Smokey Mountains, where Roger intends to write a book. Upon arriving, Libby and Roger meet Will Cade (Anthony Quinn), the caretaker of the house they are renting. Will is attracted to the reserved Libby and pursues her. Will's warmth and vitality are the opposite of Roger's staid academic demeanor and Libby begins to return Will's interest. When Libby's daughter asks her to leave Tennessee prematurely to return to New York, she's torn between her family obligations and the blossoming relationship with Will, and the idyllic rural lifestyle which has stolen her heart. Directed by Guy Green, with a soundtrack by noted composer Elmer Bernstein (The Magnificent Seven). Newly remastered.
While on vacation in the mountains the wife of a college professor meets a simple, compassionate handyman whose lust for life is the antithesis of her dry, boring husband. Not surprisingly, a passionate affair ensues.
