The acting of Liz Taylor and Monty Clift is not bad, but MGM's effort to recreate another successful Civil war melodrama in the mold of Gone With the Wind is disppointing for many different reaons.

Begins in tedium and ends, 168 leaden minutes later, in apathy.

Picture lacks highlight material; even the war scenes don't quite have the necessary impact and the relationship between Taylor and Clift could have been charged up more.

MGM's attempt to repeat the success of Gone With the Wind turned out to be an elephantine bore.

This mammoth color picture, which now runs twelve minutes shy of three hours, gives evidence of being outfitted with every extravagance save a script.

A memorable if generally unsuccessful attempt by MGM to bring back the glory of Gone With the Wind.
