Storyline

On the death of her mother, the vivacious Clio Dulaine (Ingrid Bergman) returns from Paris, France to her childhood home in New Orleans, Louisiana to seek revenge for the humiliation her mother suffered there from her father's wife's family. She also plans to marry a rich man to attain the status and respectability her mother never had, but falls for Texas gambler Colonel Clint Maroon (Gary Cooper) instead. When he leaves New Orleans for the horse racing season at Saratoga Springs, she follows him there to seek her fortune - or someone else's. Written by Joyce Bradsher <joyceable@aol.com>

Gary and Ingrid smolder!
15 November 2003 | by NativeTexanSee all my reviews

A fantastic movie, and very overlooked. Gary has never been more handsome, and Ingrid is more beautiful than in ANY other film. If you don't believe, just watch the movie. Every cast member is wonderful; the love scenes between Gary and Ingrid will make your pulse race! The story is great, the script is Oscar caliber. Don't miss this film!!
