very good film
1 January 2007 | by robert-miller-3See all my reviews

This is a very good film. Tuesday Weld and Gregory Peck give great performances. Never has Peck's 'stiff' style of acting been better suited for a role. He is wound so tight in this part it seems like he will explode any minute. His eyes and silent desperate yearning when he is looking at the truly beautiful Weld tell's the desperate needs of the man he portrays. Any man above forty will feel his pain and desire...and many his ultimate heartbreak. The original sound track by Johnny Cash is pitch perfect. The last scene of the film is truly remarkable and heartbreaking although it can be seen coming from the opening credits. This maybe Peck's most under-rated performance and Tuesday weld's best.
