THE LONG, HOT SUMMER

A Film by Martin Ritt

Starring Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Anthony Franciosa, Orson Welles, Lee Remick, Angela Lansbury


Language: English • Video: 1080p High Definition • Aspect Ratio: 2.35:1 • Audio: English 5.1 DTS-HD MA | English 2.0 DTS-HD MA • Subtitles: English SDH • Year: 1958 • Image: Colour • 117 minutes • Rating: Not Rated • Region: Free

 


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.
