Within these restrictions the film is beautifully filmed and acted.Brando has never been better,wound up,repressed as an army major,maintaining a façade of 'normalcy'.Hiding confusion,anger and desire,he's constantly fascinating to watch.Both Taylor and Harris are well cast as Brando's and Keith's unhappily married wives,who find solace through different means,one inactively and the other actively through sex.Keith becomes the `everyman' character with a lot of heart.Zorro Davis is indelible as the flamboyant `artistic' Philipino man-servant.Forster in his screen debut,the central voyeur,rides naked,sniffs lingerie and broods,acting like bait for Brando.The ensemble produce a powerful,melodramatic thrust in a drama about sexual identity and fitting square pegs into round holes. The central scene is when Brando rides Taylor's beloved horse unleashing acting of raw emotion.The comedy comes when Taylor regales Harris with all the food and drink she is laying on for the party.The film is headed by the remark:" An army post in peacetime is a dull place." Wow.
This story of endless domestic turmoil is in the style of Tennessee Williams' work, but the script is confusing, shallow, and pointless with no likable characters to root for. Taylor's shrill, girlish voice is grating as is Brando's drawl which is so bad I needed subtitles. Brian Keith and Julie Harris, as his wife, are good but he's dull and she's spaced-out and dependent on a weird houseboy. The movie was originally filmed entirely in a dark, golden color which got old, fast. Also, the story is set in the 40s, but some of Taylor's wardrobe, make-up, and hairdos are right out of the sixties and her post-Cleopatra-look.
This is an incredibly disjointed and slow-moving film that meanders around some pretty dysfunctional people without ever addressing their shortcomings straight on. Taylor and Brando's acting can only be described as hammy and I was more confused than entertained.
