This is the best of its genre!

If you want lampooning small towns with big rich families with tons of troubles; then you need to be watching "The Long Hot Summer" or "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof". If you want a good enthralling movie with strong character acting and a believable story line then this is the one for you. Having grown up in the South, especially in a small rural town I completely understand and can relate to this movie. It centers around what most of my generation had in our small towns, that one rich family who owned everything. Naturally this movie ratchets up the drama, so if you are not from this region you may think it unrealistic. Robert Mitchum is in one of his bests roles as the Cap'n. The troubles and trials of their marriage spill over into their son's life. Theron's youthful care free teenage life finally gives way to his budding adult manhood but somehow is related to the problems of his parents with a little of his own to throw in. I would recommend this movie to anyone, its a past gone era of life that I remember so well and well acted.

An interesting look at the 1950's

First, my regards and condolences to those actors, actresses, and the people involved with the making of this movie, who are still living and those that are no longer living. Though it portrayed a family in East Texas experiencing many family issues and situations that were real occurrences of the South, in the 1950's. It was actually made in Oxford, Mississippi. The home of William Faulkner and was where, John Grishom, graduated from Law School. I am not a big critic of movies, yet considering the times (the middle to late 1950's), the audience, and man and woman's role during those years, certainly, the movie portrayed many aspects that society was confronted with, especially in the South. It may have been true of the North as well, yet I have limited knowledge of that area of the country, during the 1950's. As previously mentioned, I have watched this movie many times, and more than most, and the reason is, because I was the infant (the baby in the wedding near the end of the movie). I was only 2-4 months old at the time of the wedding ceremony. I'm glad they got married!!! I have just turned 48 years of age and find people are still watching the movie. There must be something about the movie that keeps people in their seats. I consider it an 8 out of 10 on the movie scale. It is a movie to watch, take note of the past, and the interesting changes that have occurred with man, woman, and family, over the past 50+ years. In addition to what has not changed, over the past 50+ years. Actually, I think it is a 10 out of 10 on the movie scale, because I was in the movie, and because they got married, I had parents!

very underrated

I think this is Vincente Minnelli's great unsung film and may in fact stand as his best. It features one of Robert Mitchum's most perfect performances. The movie is provocative in terms of its ideas of manhood(some of its themes, particularly those concerning hunting, are very Hemingway-ish)This movie also presents a way of living that is today becoming increasingly anachronistic and unpopular. It is for this reason also that it is so fascinating - it presents a window to an ever diminishing way of life. Of course it is first and foremost a melodrama, but this aspect I found to be often overshadowed by the secondary themes and the little details, like Robert Mitchum's den (was there ever a room that defined machismo the way this one does?).
