Format: VHS Tape
This is a deft directorial effort by Elia Kazan. The name of the film comes from some telling lines of poetry by Wordsworth that are thematic for what transpires in the film. It is a beautifully acted, well told, coming of age story. It is also a story about young love in all its innocence and hopefulness.
The film takes the viewer to the bucolic Midwest of the nineteen twenties. There, the viewer meets small town, high school sweethearts, the lovely Wilma Dean Loomis (Natalie Wood) and the handsome and wealthy Bud Stamper (Warren Beatty). Wilma, "Deanie" to her friends, is head over heels in love with Bud, and he is head over heels in love with "Deanie". They want to get married right after graduation, and Bud wants to farm the family ranch.
The only problem is Bud's Father. He wants Bud to cool it with "Deanie" and to see other girls for the fun of it. He wants Bud to attend an Ivy League college and put off getting married. Bud tries to comply and cools it with "Deanie". The problem is that things had heated up between them before the breakup, and "Deanie" cannot adjust to being without Bud. Her heartbreak is palpable, and Natalie Wood's performance is so poignant, the viewer can just about hear her heart break, when she sees Bud with another girl. It is her yearning for what was that ultimately brings her to the bittersweet edge of despair. Likewise, it is Bud's yearning for "Deanie" that makes him behave in ways that are contrary to his own interests.
Well, the best laid plans often go awry, and things do not work out for Bud or "Deanie" the way they had originally planned. Their world is rent asunder by the vicissitudes of life and the impact of world events and others on their plans.

Format: DVD
"There's nothing can bring back the hour / Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower / We will grieve not, but rather find / Strength in what remains behind."

This is a Freudian film of repressed sexuality and its consequences, that takes place in 1925 in Kansas. The two stars Warren Beatty and Natalie Wood are high school seniors who can't consummate their love due to social constraints of their time. As far fetched as it may seem within today's mores, this was the case in the 1920's. This was Warren Beatty's first film, and it was a great showcase to his future film career. Natalie Wood shines in this film, and as I watched this film I wondered what kind of mental illness occurred in her family. Wood's character had a real shrew as a mother, and Beatty's father was an overbearing, unloving man.

The director was Elian Kazan, one of those directors who was not afraid to break down the barriers of sexual,frustration. No emotion was left bare, this is the real deal. Excellent acting and characterization, one of those films that should be seen by everyone.

This film is an epic, sweeping and ultimately sad romance - the timeless story of two teenage lovers kept apart by background and circumstance. It was one of the first silver-screen classics to bring a tear to my eye, so getting it on video has become a priority for me. And I found out recently that this was Warren Beatty's first film! He was a lucky man, getting to star opposite the divine Natalie Wood.

It is surprising to realise that this film was made half a century ago, as it has dated well, and is still well worth a look. The young and very handsome Warren Beatty plays the role of Bud with a confidence that is impressive, especially considering that this was his debut film. Natalie Wood is perfect as the troubled teenager Deanie. Bud never intends to hurt her, but Deanie's fragile nature sends her into a downward slide, when she sees Bud with another girl. The film here is a good quality transfer, and looks much clearer than a VHS copy I saw years ago. The film is coloured with warm and autumnal settings, outdoor scenes of sunshine and open space, wonderfully photographed. But it is the acting that will leave a lasting impression. A great film to watch, even after repeated viewing.
The extra features are the theatrical trailer, and a Roadrunner cartoon from the same year, which was oscar-nominated.

Not having seen this movie since its first release I was somewhat sceptical. However I was pleasantly surprised at its impact especially in the performance of Natalie Wood- her best I think. Perhaps a bit "fraught" in the manner of the time but it does have an underlying truth to it.Overall-well worth a viewing. Performances are impressive.

THis was a movie that I had seen when I was 15 on a black and white TV in Turkey and it had stayed in my mind since. I was very happy to find and purchase it as I always wanted to have it in my collection. The seller(Afternoon Matinee) was the fastest seller to deliver what I ordered.(It was my fist shopping from Amazon and through internet)The DVD arrived in three days despite it wasn't a special order or anything and it arrived before the ones which were supposed to be delivered in one day by some other companies. SO I am very happy with the speed of delivery..
The product is in a very good condition and it arrived in a very secure and safe packaging.
I watched it years later again and happy to keep it in my "Favorite love stories" collection. Natalie Wood is brilliant as the borderline teenager who loves the troubled Bud..The poem which makes the title for the movieis a poem of Walt Whitman and I had heard it for the first time when I watched this movie. Walt Whitman is one of my favorite poest since then. It is a love story which has a happy ending if you ask me in the sense that the poem describes. The pains and memories of a destructive first love and recovery from its pain for both characters in different ways. It's about loving someone a bit too much and letting go of the obsession in the end which doesn't always come with a small price. I remember crying a lot when I watched it for the first time but it didn't have the same affect as I wasn't a teenager and grew up like the main characters of the movie. It's a good drama about love and loss and I definitely suggest to those who tries to understand all the aspects of love.
