Movie Info

This is an early-'50s effort that attempts to portray the shoulder-bumping, step-ahead world of the unmentionable American caste system. Jennifer Jones stars as Ruby Corey, who turns into Ruby Gentry, a poor-white Carolina girl who, when spurned by a social "higher-up" (Charlton Heston), decides to marry a Daddy Warbucks-type (Karl Malden) successful businessman to get even with her lost lover.

    everyone in the film is nuts. it's a slightly smaller scale 'duel in the sun' with a bit better acting from the leads but heston is no substitute for peck's hotness
