Reckless playboy Bob Merrick (ROCK HUDSON, in his breakthrough role) crashes his speedboat, requiring emergency attention from the town’s only resuscitator—at the very moment that a beloved local doctor has a heart attack and dies waiting for the lifesaving device. Thus begins one of the  most flamboyant master classes in melodrama from DOUGLAS SIRK (All That Heaven Allows), a delirious Technicolor mix of the sudsy and the spiritual in which Bob and the doctor’s widow, Helen (The Lost Weekend’s JANE WYMAN), find themselves inextricably linked amid a series of increasingly wild twists, turns, trials, and tribulations.
