it deserves more recognition for its exploration of toxic masculinity, its portrayal of a dysfunctional family, Minnelli's excellent direction and the great cast. Full Review

Its rhetoric may be laconic and folksy, but its fury and its nobility seem distilled from Shakespeare. Full Review

Although it is too long and there are some perplexing gaps and ambiguities in the story, this is an interesting and richly atmospheric rural drama with a Deep South locale. Full Review

Rating: A -- Along with Some Came Running, it ranks as Minnelli's finest family melodrama, lurid and flamboyant yet also deeply emotional and incisive in its critique of the patriarchal order; Robert Mitchum as the patriarch is superb. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Wade Hunnicutt is a big man who casts a big shadow, one that looms over the Texas backwoodsmen who work his land... over the beautiful, embittered wife on whom he cheats... and over the sons – one from marriage and one illegitimate – who strive for their father's respect.
