Storyline

On a U.S. Army post circa 1948, a major who is an impotent, latent homosexual is married to an infantile birdbrain who never misses an opportunity to ridicule his masculine failings. He displaces his hostility by brutally flogging her horse and she retaliates by humiliating him before a houseful of guests, repeatedly slashing him across the face with her riding crop. She is also committing adultery with the officer next door, who's wife cut off her nipples with garden shears after the death of her baby. She has sought solace in the ministrations of her effeminate houseboy. The sixth character, coveted by the major, is a darkly handsome noncom, a voyeur and lingerie-fondler, given to nightly appearances as a peeping tom in the birdbrain's bedroom and daily sessions of horseback riding in the middle of the woods stark naked.

Maj. Weldon Penderton: I'm sorry, Leonora. It's just all this clutter is...
Leonora: What's the matter with clutter? I like it.
Maj. Weldon Penderton: I'd rather live without it. Bare floors. Plain white walls. No window curtains. Nothing but essentials.
Leonora: If that's the way you feel about it, why don't you resign your commission and start all over again as an enlisted man?
Maj. Weldon Penderton: Of course you're laughing at it, but there's much to be said for the life of men among men... with no... luxuries, no ornamentation. Utter simplicity. It's rough and it's coarse, ...

Quite extraordinary, but still unsatisfying...
11 May 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

God knows what this picture looked like on the printed page--or, indeed, what this cast of talented actors were thinking when they first read it. Elizabeth Taylor probably thought it a hoot; I certainly did, but really...Julie Harris as a woebegone mental case who has used pruning shears to...oh never mind. It's really about Marlon Brando playing an Army officer down South, married to Taylor but secretly in love with stud-soldier Robert Forster (who rides his horse completely naked). There's Liz's lover Brian Keith, his wife (Harris), and a Philippino houseboy who makes like Billy DeWolfe. Is it camp, heartfelt, or just terrible? Actually it's all three, which is not only what kept me watching but keeps me returning. Still, the film feels tampered with: muted in certain spots where it should be played to the hilt, yet overdrawn when it should be subtle. It's a glorious mess. **1/2 from ****
