Goofs

On the day Owen is leaving Dodson, MS to return to New Orleans, LA, we can see a fire burning in the background with a plume of black smoke rising from it, such as a burning tire or an oil fire. Then at the end of the movie when Willy is recounting the fate of Alma, and as the helicopter shot rises up, that same fire is burning. The helicopter even flies through the plume of smoke.

Unexpected Surprise
24 April 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I just happened to find this movie on AMC yesterday. I am a very huge Natalie Wood fan myself and I have been dying to check out this movie a long time ago. At first, I thought it was just another romantic movie from the 1960's. But no, this movie is good--a total surprise.

At the beginning, Owen (Robert Redford) is a mysterious stranger who comes to this unknown town for work. He meets this big flirt Alva (Natalie Wood) and she seems to be very fond of him. And later they have an affair but it ends up tragically due to Alva's mother's will.

Redford and Wood have a great chemistry in this movie, which I am quite surprise of. Redford is handsome and calm, yet passion inside. And Wood is absolutely stunning. She was handling her character's transition really well. You can almost feel her agony when her mother "begged" her to stay with a wealthy, lonely old man for "just a tiny bit of time in her life". This is a good movie. A must see. Especially if you're a big fan of Redford and Wood. They are fascinating.
