Wade Hunnicutt is a big man who casts a big shadow, one that looms over the Texas backwoodsmen who work his land...over the beautiful, embittered wife he cheats on...and over the sons - one from marriage and one illegitimate - who strive for their father's respect. Robert Mitchum "gives one of his greatest performances" (Michael Barson, The Illustrated Who's Who of Hollywood Directors) as Wade, and Vincente Minnelli directs this sprawling emotionally volatile of an epic clash between generations. In early-career roles, George Peppard and George Hamilton co-star as Wade's sons, determined to be their own men, yet in danger of repeating their father's life-crippling legacy of lust and violence.
