SIFF Film Center | The Films of Douglas Sirk
The spoiled, impulsive heirs of a wealthy oil baron, Kyle (Rock Hudson) and Marylee (Lauren Bacall), live carefree lives bent on their self-destructive tendencies. Unable to escape from their personal demons brought on by a lifetime of luxury, the tragedy that is their destiny spirals out of control when Kyle becomes suspicious of his wife (Dorothy Malone) and best friend (Robert Stack) – whom Marylee pines for endlessly. Beautifully illustrating the creative potential of Technicolor and Widescreen, this carefully crafted melodramatic powerhouse is packed with a delirious combination of theatrics and style.
