Careful what you wish for & who you give your heart to is the moral of this story. Natalie Wood is pretty intense. Such a classy dame! I loved the supporting characters the best. Ma & Pa back in the day. Simply hilarious.

...I saw this as a teenager in junior high. Scared me out of having relationships with men for years, which was probably best, since this movie was an example of a worst case scenario. The part where she jumped into the river was particularly harrowing since in real life, she was scared of the water, plus they had to reshoot that scene over and over again, I don't know how she did it. Once, a set crew member had to jump in and get her out. And... ironically, she drowned to her death in real life.
