Audience Reviews for Raintree County

  • Jun 19, 2016
    A lavish production that wants to repeat the success of Gone with the Wind but is boring to death in its massive running time of almost three hours and suffers also from Montgomery Clift's erratic performance and the bizarre change in his looks due to his tragic car accident.

    Monty and Taylor lack the sizzle from A Place in the Sun. This Civil War "epic" is a mess in more ways than one.

    There are a lot of great actors in this movie (keep an eye out for DeForrest Kelly in a small role), but it's a boring civil war romantic drama. Gone with the Wind is much better than this movie. Overall it's okay, though.

    I'm a sucker for the 50's epics and this one isn't the best, but it is enjoyable to watch. Monty is a man believed destined for greatness, but is sidetracked when he leaves his life long love(Gorgeous Eva) for Bat-Shit Crazy Liz Taylor,all while the Civil War is going on. Liz does a great job as a southern racist and wacko and Monty is great as the most patient and tolerable man I've ever seen. The whole cast is good and it has the great Lee Marvin as Monty's drinking and war buddy. This is the film that Monty had his disfiguring car wreak on and you see some changes throughout the film, but nothing too noticeable.
