AUDIENCE SCORE

Rating: B -- In 1962, the film was deemed audacious due to its handling of such taboo issues as drugs, abortion, and degeneracy, but it's a comromised work which deviates substantially from Tennessee Williams' play. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- When approaching 1962's Sweet Bird of Youth, go for the parts rather than the whole.... [T]he film is a long drive through swampy melodrama. Full Review

It's a glossy, engrossing hunk of motion picture entertainment, slickly produced by Berman. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- This cynical, coruscating drama has a strong look of being contrived, and Mr. Brooks' happy ending for it is implausible and absurd. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Handsome Chance Wayne never found the Hollywood stardom he craved, but he's always been a star with the ladies. Now, back in his sleepy, sweaty Gulf Coast hometown, he's involved with two of them: a washed-up, drug-and-vodka-addled movie queen and the girl he left behind...and in trouble.
