DIRECTOR: NICHOLAS RAY

CAST: SUSAN HAYWARD, ROBERT MITCHUM

CINEMATOGRAPHY - LEE GARMES

Nicholas Ray’s tender, rueful macho melodrama stars Robert Mitchum as brokendown bronco-buster Jeff McCloud, teaching the rodeo ropes to wannabe Arthur Kennedy while not failing to notice his young wife (Susan Hayward). Beautifully shot in dust-caked black-and-white by Lee Garmes, and featuring the most
heartbreaking homecoming in all of cinema.
