Early in the film, Ruby and Boake are driving on the beach in his car. There are noticeable mountains in the background. Since the film takes place on the coast of North Carolina, the landscape should be flat with the exception of sand dunes. See more »
This is going to be a mighty lively hunting party; with you all set to launch a campaign for Ruby and Boake Tackman just back from South America.

Jennifer Jones plays a feisty tomboy with a sadistic streak who's in love with young masochistic Charlton Heston and will do anything to have him - or to reject and ruin him at varying times, it seems - in this slight and silly offering from director King Vidor. What Heston's character sees in this nut-job Ruby is any viewer's guess.
Jones and Heston aren't bad, and Karl Malden is also a welcome asset to the cast in a supporting role. The ending is interesting amidst a well-photographed swamp background. But overall this is a dressed up and rather tacky melodrama that's much better directed than it probably had any right to be.
