High school seniors Bud Stamper and Deanie Loomis are in love with each other. Bud, the popular football captain, and Deanie, the sensitive soul, are “good” kids who have only gone as far as kissing. Unspoken to each other, they expect to get married to each other one day. But both face pressures within the relationship, Bud who has the urges to go farther despite knowing in his heart that if they do that Deanie will end up with a reputation like his own sister, Ginny Stamper, known as the loose, immoral party girl, and Deanie who will do anything to hold onto Bud regardless of the consequences. They also face pressures from their parents who have their own expectation for their offspring. Bud’s overbearing father, Ace Stamper, the local oil baron, does not believe Bud can do wrong and expects him to go to Yale after graduation, which does not fit within Bud’s own expectations for himself. And the money and image conscious Mrs. Loomis just wants Deanie to get married as soon as possible to Bud so that Deanie will have a prosperous life in a rich family. When Bud makes a unilateral decision under these pressures, it leads to a path which affects both his and Deanie’s future.
Plot: A fragile Kansas girl’s unrequited and forbidden love for a handsome young man from the town’s most powerful family drives her to heartbreak and madness.

Splendor all around!
This is a beautiful and powerful film – flawlessly acted, directed and written. It is easily the best of the sexual awakening movies that were so popular in the late fifties, early sixties. And why wouldn’t it be – with Kazan at the helm and an original screenplay by William Inge.

The film begins with a similar theme to “Rebel Without a Cause” – that is why won’t parents treat their children like human beings and really help them come to terms with becoming adults? But halfway through Inge does a clever turn-around and allows the kids to discover that their parents are human beings too, with all the weaknesses and frailties that go with being human. At the same time Inge portrays the coming of age of America as the joy of the roaring twenties moves into the gloom of the Depression.

The story is about how prejudice and blind morality destroys a great love – sex shouldn’t be such a huge issue between two people who love each other, but the enormous pressures from outside to either do it or refrain from doing it cause confusion, pain and hurt. Who will ever forget Natalie Wood leaping naked from a bath screaming at her mother that she is not “spoiled”? Wood gives the performance of her life here, convincingly portraying adolescent love, a nervous breakdown, and the blossoming into woman-hood. Beatty too is splendid as the confused Bud. And both are so achingly beautiful!

The supporting cast is superb down to the smallest role. Barbara Loden is particularly memorable as Beatty’s wild flapper sister, but Pat Hingle as his father, and Audrey Christie and Fred Stewart as Wood’s parents are also unforgettable.

This is a resonant film that I believe will be more and more appreciated with the passing of time.

Heartbreaking but incredibly good
*Splendor in the Grass*

I’ve sen Splendor in the Grass a few times now, and with each time my heart breaks a little more. Incredible directing, magnificent acting, and traumatizing events that will leave you breathless and maybe in tears. I don’t think any movie has made me feel true pain like this one did. I don’t know what it was, but it was amazing. I feel the desire Bud has and the torture Deadie is going through, and I think it’s because of either the impeccable acting from the leads and supporting cast (Bud’s sister was great in her role) or the flawless directing of Elia Kazan.

The opening scene begins with Bud(Beatty) and Deadie(Wood) “necking” (got to get that old-timey vibe) in Bud’s car. Deadie has been told time and time again by her mother that you must never go all they way before marriage. Deadie’s parents are so unaware of what teens were doing at the time. So she refuses to do it with him. This angers Bud in a way that’s easy to tell, he loves her but he wants more then just that. But they’re relationship is more then just sex. They really are crazy about each other. Bud’s father suggests he dates “another kind of woman”. And I’ll leave it at that.

Natalie Wood really shows here that she can act. Not that she hadn’t shown in in West Side Story and Rebel Without a Cause, but in this one she just shines. Her transformation from clean and virginal to almost insane is genius. Bravo, Natalie. Warren Beatty is pretty good, well actually he is very good, considering it was pretty much his first movie. And despite Bonnie and Clyde he really hasn’t been too good in anything since. Like I said before, the rest of the cast delivers perfectly too. Elia Kazan always knows how to bring out the best in a cast. Marlon Brando gave the performance of a lifetime in On The Waterfront and Natalie Wood does the same with this.

This is a sad and heartbreaking tale that can’t be missed. The end gets me every time.
