Screenwriters Charles Schnee and John Michael Hayes reconfigure John O'Hara's 1935 novel (updating the novel from the Prohibition era, turning the climax into a Hollywood crescendo, re-writing O'Hara's dialogue), in this hybrid film adaptation, marking by an Academy Award-winning performance by Elizabeth Taylor as a young woman tortured by her conflicts between morality and desire. Drifting from one man to another, she finally meets married-man Laurence Harvey when, during their six-day fling, her passion turns into love. Paul Brenner
