Passionately directed by Otto Preminger (Anatomy of a Murder) and adapted by Dalton Trumbo (Hawaii), the film features an all-star cast—Paul Newman (From the Terrace), Eva Marie Saint (Grand Prix), Ralph Richardson (Long Day’s Journey into Night), Sal Mineo (Escape from Zahrain), Lee J. Cobb (On the Waterfront), and John Derek (The Ten Commandments)—in a sprawling and phenomenally moving narrative underscored by the Academy Award-winning music of the great Ernest Gold, which is available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to keep an eye on the Twilight Time site or that of their distributor Screen Archives’s for the announcement of the prebook date (usually 2-3 weeks before the title’s street date) and get ready to reserve!
