Rating: 3/4 -- Splendor in the Grass is a prestigious, top-of-the-line, sensitively-handled melodramatic literalization of the axiom "If you touch yourself too much, you'll go crazy." Full Review

There is something awkward about the picture's mechanical rhythm. There are missing links and blind alleys within the story. Full Review

Rating: B -- With his ripe lips, flirty eyes, and pre-Calvin Klein-era androgynous appeal, the 24-year-old Warren is utterly believable as a boy who drives Natalie Wood plumb insane with sexual frustration in William Inge's overheated melodrama. Full Review

Rating: B- -- This romantic sudser is darker than those of its day, as it shockingly deals with matters Hollywood had previously kept under wraps. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- The psychology may be simplistic, but the powerful portrayals from the cast - especially from Beatty - make that weakness seem like an irrelevance. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Set in rural Kansas, Splendor in the Grass tells the tragically romantic tale of teenagers Deanie (Natalie Wood) and Bud (Warren Beatty) who repress their desires because of their families' disapproval. Coming from radically different backgrounds -- one wealthy, the other staunchly puritanical -- they allow class differences to prevent any possible union. Their passions exist purely in their hearts and minds, but the couple never physically or socially express this forbidden love. Later in life, Deanie is institutionalized following a breakdown, and she eventually returns home to resolve her feelings about Bud.
