Number of Times Seen – 1 (15 Jul 2018)

Brief Synopsis – A young girl tells a young boy she meets on the railroad tracks about the life of her older sister.

My Take on it – This is a film that I’ve been interested in seeing for quite some time due to the fact that it stars Natalie Wood, Robert Redford and Charles Bronson.

Unfortunately, the story just doesn’t work at all.

There is no chemistry between Wood and Redford or Bronson which takes away from the believability of the story or the characters.

The characters themselves are too eccentric and portrayed very over the top which makes them come across as being quite uninteresting.

All of these factors together take away from the enjoyment of such a film and makes one wonder why this was considered such a great play that was adapted into a very mediocre (at best) film.

Bottom Line – Terrible film that doesn’t manage to stay interesting at all. Woods has no chemistry with Bronson or Redford which makes it all feel too strange. The characters are not interesting at all and the performances are too over-the-top which also takes away from the enjoyment of this film.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Tennessee Williams was so dismayed by the film made from his play he threatened to have his name taken off the credits.  (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (4/10)
