Rock Hudson and Lauren Bacall star in Douglas Sirk's 1956 adaptation of Robert Wilder's novel, an entanglement of empires and secret romances. Co-stars Robert Stack, nominated for an Oscar in this role, and Dorothy Malone, who won an Academy Award for her performance.

Mitch Wayne (Hudson) is a geologist working for the Hadleys, an oil-rich Texas family. While the patriarch, Jared (Robert Keith), works hard to establish the family business, his irresponsible son, Kyle (Stack), is an alcoholic playboy, and his daughter, Marylee (Malone), is the town tramp. Mitch harbors a secret love for Kyle's unsatisfied wife, Lucy (Bacall) -- a fact that leaves him exposed when the jealous Marylee accuses him of murder.
