He and his wife Leonora Penderton (Dame Elizabeth Taylor) are in an unsatisfying marriage. Weldon is generally a solitary man who in his time alone tries to bolster his self image as he feels less than adequate as a man and a Major. He does not want to viewed like Captain Murray Weincheck (Irvin Dugan), who has been bypassed for promotion time and time again solely because he is seen as being too sensitive. Self absorbed Leonora, when not focused on her passion of horses and riding, tries to maintain the façade of being what she sees an officer’s wife should be while she carries on an affair with their next door neighbor, married Lieutenant Colonel Morris Langdon (Brian Keith). Morris’ wife, Alison Langdon (Julie Harris), suffered a nervous breakdown three years ago after miscarrying her child, she is still with that nervous constitution. Alison is generally drawn toward sensitive types, such as Captain Weincheck and their faithful flamboyant Filipino houseboy, Anacleto (Zorro David). Peripheral to the Pendertons’ lives is brooding Private L.G. Williams (Robert Forster), who Leonora knows as the enlisted man who works at the stables, and who Weldon asks to do some work around their house. While Weldon secretly becomes fixated on Williams, Williams in turn becomes secretly fixated on Leonora. The question becomes what emotions, many of those emotions being latent, will dictate what actions each of these people will make.
Plot: Bizarre tale of sex, betrayal, and perversion at a military post.

Weak film for everyone involved
Mostly reminiscent of Suddenly Last Summer, which was made eight years earlier. With the loosening of the Hayes Code, Huston is able to imply a lot more than Mankiewicz could, but, just like the earlier film, in the end it feels like little more than a freakshow, with little insight into the situation or characters. I was hugely disappointed in it. I also found it nearly impossible to pay attention to. It moves slowly and is very poorly paced. Except for some of the racier material that wouldn’t have flied just a few years earlier, it’s really hard to believe that this was made in 1967. The film-making feels so creaky and old-fashioned compared to other American films released the same year, like Bonnie & Clyde, Cool Hand Luke and In Cold Blood. I’m not overly familiar with John Huston’s filmography, but with a film like Moby Dick it felt like he was the director most responsible for modernity in American cinema. I didn’t much care for the performances either. Elizabeth Taylor delivered the performance of her life the previous year with Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, and this feels like a reversion to a more classical, palatable Liz (palatable in looks and style; the character is a bitch, but it’s nothing new). Nice to see that her Martha was just an act, though, which makes that performance even more impressive. I’ve actually been kind of sick of Brando for several years now. His Actors’ Studio style just gets on my nerves, and those habits are in full force in this film. His constant mumbling is so difficult to understand I had to turn on subtitles. The film’s final shot is hilarious, though of course unintentionally. Maybe I’ll give this another try down the road, but after one viewing I really didn’t care for it.
