“Paul Newman’s performance as Ben Quick is as mean and keen as a cackle-edge scythe.”
? Time Magazine

“Strikingly directed by Martin Ritt…melodrama frank and unashamed …Highlighting the diverse and contrasting moods is the fine score by Alex North.”
- Variety

The extraordinary team of director Martin Ritt and writers Irving Ravetch and Harriet Frank Jr. adapt a pair of William Faulkner narratives in The Long, Hot Summer (1958). Paul Newman gives perhaps his most Newmanian performance as a crafty drifter who drops like a bomb into the wealthy Varner family, already a stewpot of lust, rivalry, and dysfunction. Orson Welles is the manipulative paterfamilias; Joanne Woodward his intelligent, wary daughter; Anthony Franciosa his weakling son; Angela Lansbury his long-suffering mistress; and Lee Remick his sexed-up daughter-in-law. This seductive cocktail is handsomely scored by the great Alex North.
