Synopsis

Social drama set in the rural U.S. in the early 1930s, directed by Elia Kazan. Montgomery Clift stars as Chuck Glover, an agent sent by the Tennessee Valley Authority to the small town of Garthville to oversee the building of a dam. He encounters opposition from the local people, including an elderly woman called Ella Garth (Jo Van Fleet) who refuses to budge from her land, and various factions who object to his provision of paid employment to local black labourers. Lee Remick co-stars as Ella Garth's granddaughter Carol, who gradually falls in love with the sensitive and liberal-minded Glover.
