    This movie illustrates what happens when someone with a melancholic temperament is raised by a father who is an undertaker and a mother who serves up the guilt after that father dies, all in a boring and dreary town. She goes to a religious meeting and somehow makes a fool out of herself despite the fact that she is not religious. Then her only girlfriend plants a big sloppy kiss on her, but that only makes things uncomfortable between them. She decides to have unprotected sex with a guy who is crude enough to take off all of his clothes even before he kisses her. For a while she is happy, but he abandons her. She thinks she is pregnant and contemplates an abortion. Then she decides to have the baby. Then it turns out that the little thing growing inside her is a cyst. In typical Hollywood fashion, she gets the benefit of "doing the right thing" without paying the price. Finally, she decides to move out of town, but she has to bring her same old dreary self with her, so we don't have much hope for her.

    I saw this movie when it was released in the late sixties and I still enjoy watching it. Joanne Woodward, Estelle Parsons and Kate Harrington give great performances. I have the DVD and bring it out every few months to enjoy this gem again.

  • Wonderful film about life.

    Any movie Joanne Woodward is in, I love. She is just a phenomenal actress and I always become captivated watching her use the most of her character....actresses don't exist in Hollywood anymore that are of the likes of Woodward. This is a wonderful movie about life, but there are some odd parts not suitable for kids, unless their teenagers, then I think it's a great way to discuss with them the rough times of life and that it doesn't always present us with the most ideal circumstances. Rachel is the kind of person you want to befriend, she's loyal and calm and sorely missed in this world.

    An interesting film. Far, far more than just a teacher trying to over come shyness.Really shows some of the depth of Joanne Woodward. She has a similar cackle toher husband-director Paul Newman that many may not catch (Rachael and Hector- prior to her asking where the embalming is done.) Its a deep film in many ways.Be aware - some parts may be bothering for some people. As noted afore, its farmore than just shyness - which truly not a representative description. Quantitativeperhaps. It is an adult based movie, for a proper mature audience despite the timeperiod difference's of then and now. They really captured the tonality of realism.
