The minister of the town has died and his son Chad has no tears for him. Sarah, who now calls herself Salome, is pregnant with Chad's baby, but Chad has no future, no job and no money. Therefore, she leaves town on the train heading East. On the train she meets Tony who is heading back to Yale. Tony and his sister Catherine have one thing in common; they are both young, rich and bored with their lives. Salome goes to Yale with Tony and they are soon married, but she does not tell him about Chad or the pregnancy. Ruby takes Chad to New York where he plays trumpet and makes a name for himself. Catherine leaves school and moves in with Tony and Salome, creating tension between the young couple. Written by

Utterly silly melodrama, adapted by Robert Thom from Rosamond Marshall's book "The Bixby Girls", plays like bad Tennessee Williams. Robert Wagner is alternately sullen and constipated as Texas trumpet-player who finds success in New York City; pregnant girlfriend Natalie Wood (Wagner's wife in real-life) ends up there too, and eventually their paths cross again. Unlikely, overripe star-laden product has some good jazz music to its credit, nice production design, but precious little else. Natalie tries hard, Pearl Bailey gets to belt out two numbers, but the dopey dialogue and characters sinks this one like a stone. *1/2 from ****
