Two Golden Globe nominations went to this drama about a Confederate veteran and his struggles in the Yankee North, which includes his son’s shock induced muteness and the hatred of his Northern neighbors. Oscar winner Michael Curtiz (Casablanca, The Adventures of Robin Hood) directed a strong cast of well-regarded stars, including Alan Ladd, Olivia de Havilland, and Dean Jagger, with such familiar supporting actors as John Carradine, Henry Hull, James Westerfield, and Harry Dean Stanton.
