DIRECTOR: DOUGLAS SIRK

CAST: ROCK HUDSON, JANE WYMAN

Perhaps the very finest of Sirk’s melodramas pairs Jane Wyman and Rock Hudson as, respectively, a well-off widow in country club Connecticut, and the hunky, Thoreau-reading gardener who she falls for. Her children, aghast, conspire to break off the pairing, concluding in an absolutely-chilling Christmas conciliation—the presentation of a gift as a kind of death sentence.
