A criminally overlooked film in Newman's career. I myself slept on it for years, putting off seeing it for fear it would be a dud like the other late 50s Newman flick Rally Round The Flag Boys. Couldnt have been more wrong. Check it out at your earliest convenience for a great ensemble cast, tight script, and compelling plot. This is great commentary on society and social standing really. Many layers here. 4.5 stars
