Movie synopsis
Ideological midwestern lad John Shawnessy (Montgomery Clift) lets intriguing southern belle Susanna (Elizabeth Taylor) lure him from Raintree County and his angelic hometown sweetheart (Eva Marie Saint). Wed against the advice of the locals, the pair head South and spend the next few years making each other royally miserable. As it turns out, Susanna is more than slightly neurotic as the result of some buried family secrets, and as for John...oh, why? Why did he ever leave Raintree County? Later, the Civil War breaks out, and the turmoil and troubles get even more woeful. The film is a lengthy, stately affair, filled with lots of green meadows and fine performances, which usually transcend the stilted dialogue. Lee Marvin is excellent as a hard-drinking braggart, and Saint is even more radiant than Taylor. Unfortunately, Clift suffered a near-fatal car accident during filming, which left his face scarred and partially paralyzed. Many of his scenes in this film naturally suffer as a result of this tragedy. Hoping it would be another GONE WITH THE WIND, the producers lined up Edward Dmytryk to direct from the Ross Lockridge novel, while Johnny Green composed the excellent music, with Nat King Cole singing the title track.

Raintree County

Review For: Raintree County (DVD, 2007)

This movie was filmed with Liz Taylor and Montgomery Clift(along with Eva Marie Saint)near my hometown of Evansville,Indiana around 1959 when I was 8 years old.The theme was sung by Nat "King" Cole,one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century.It is very Hoosier(Indiana in many ways),and I love it for the scenery and places that remind me so much of home.I have looked for it for a long time.Great story,Civil War-era scenes and old midwestern scenes from the 1800s.I highly recommend it for movie lovers.Classic acting and production-and a very scarce film.Watch it!!

Raintree county Elizabeth Taylor Montgomery Cliff 1957

Review For: Raintree County (DVD, 2007)

This is my all time favorite movie, I grew up in love with the civil was period and you get a lot of it in this movie. I saw this movie in thye theater went it first open and its been my Fav ever since. I had the on VHS and the quality was 1st rate. The dvd was a little disappointing because of tyhe poor color and frequencey response but its nice to have one on dvd , I think the dvd will out last the vhs. P.S. I live in Kentucky and most of the movie was filmed in Danville,KY and we just had the 50th anniversary in August 2007. Enjoy the movie, and over look the video quality! capnront

Review For: Raintree County (DVD, 2007)

This movie was intended to be a prequel to Gone With The Wind but failed. It is interesting and enjoyable to watch but leaves questions to be answered per the Civil War.
