Watch Splendor in the Grass - Alternative Versions.
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
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
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
This is a resonant film that I believe will be more and more appreciated
with the passing of time.
