MGM sought to replicate the success of A Place in the Sun by re-teaming the red-hot Taylor and Clift in this spectacular Civil War drama. Taylor’s portrayal of unstable beauty Susanna Drake heralded a fascination with mentally ill characters and earned her an Academy Award nomination. Taylor’s success did little to alleviate her memories of making the film, having been first on the scene of a horrific car accident that saw Clift return to the set physically and mentally scarred.
