Splendor in the Grass
Deanie is a beautiful and sensitive teenager who would do whatever her mother and her 1928 Kansas hometown find proper. Her boyfriend, Bud, has intense desires for Deanie and the two are very much in love. But, sexual pressures in society creates a rift in their relationship. She restrains herself while Bud acts on them, but with another girl. Bud's actions drive Deanie to madness. She is committed into an institution while Bud reluctantly obeys his father and enrolls in Yale. The stock market crash of '29 hits and changes the lives of both their families. Together they learn the harsh lesson of love and life.

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.

A superb film with great acting and directing.
