The relationship of two teenage lovers is ripped apart by the repressive mentality of their 1920s Kansas town in Kazan's dramatic coming-of-age tale.

Starring Natalie Wood, whose fragile and ultimately tragic portrayal of Wilma Dean Loomis earned her an Oscar nomination, and Warren Beatty (in his screen debut) as the handsome, well-to-do Bud Stamper, with Sandy Dennis, Barbara Loden and Phyllis Diller.
