The book makes reference to the movie "Summer and Smoke", but incorrectly names Paul Newman as the co-star with Geraldine Page in that film, rather than her actual co-star Lawrence Harvey. Lee Remick was also in "Summer and Smoke" See more »

An Oregon logging family refuses to join the local union in a strike, leading to tension in the small town. The best-selling Kesey novel becomes a lackluster film. This was Newman's second stint in the director's chair and he seems unsure about how to tell a good story. The plot moves in fits and starts, making it hard to become invested in the story. Too much screen time is devoted to logging scenes that disrupt the narrative flow. The film is best remembered for a heart-wrenching scene involving a logging accident. Newman, Fonda, and Remick head a good cast, with Jaeckel particularly impressive as Newman's cousin.
