Storyline

Youngblood Hawke is a truck driver from Kentucky who comes to New York City to become a hot-shot writer. Almost immediately, he meets editor Jeanne Green. She sees great promise in Hawke's writing and falls for the handsome Kentuckian while helping him put together his first book deal. His first novel is moderately successful, but it is soon transformed into a Broadway play by a has-been stage actress. Jeanne discovers that Youngblood has an effect on a great many women, so she takes a job at a new publishing company. Soon after, Hawke's second novel is heralded and he becomes the toast of the town. He then has an affair with a married socialite. His third novel bombs and is also panned by critics...Hawke's financial state declines into hard times. Returning to Kentucky to work on his next book, he contracts pneumonia before realizing that his first editor Jeanne was his ideal woman. Written by thustlebird

One of the cinema's finest female performances ever
21 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Genevieve Page sets the screen alight with one of the most scintillating, passionate, humorous, and intense performances ever seen in a Hollywood movie. What an original! This film is excellently scripted and directed, and all of the cast are superb. I cannot understand why it is not for sale on DVD in every major shop. The word 'classic' is often used to describe a film, but in this case the word 'classic' is if anything inadequate. The film ranks with SHIP OF FOOLS as one of the greatest world cinematic achievements of the 1960s. And as in the case of that film as well (Simone Signoret and Oscar Werner), it is the performances which put it over the top. Without Genevieve Page, this film would have been very good, but with her it is a triumph. She really ranks at the very top of screen actresses in the history of the cinema, for this amazing performance. The sophistication of her technique and the subtlety of her work are a lesson to all aspiring actresses, and the film is pure delight.
