Sea Of Grass, The
It's 15 miles to the nearest neighbor. And the sound that drifts in the night is from windswept New Mexico Territory Grasslands. St. Louis society belle Lutie Cameron steps into a different world when she arrives in Salt Fork to begin her life as the wife of cattle baron Jim Brewton. But Lutie is sure love can make it all worthwhile.
Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn star in and Elia Kazan directs The Sea Of Grass, an American pastorale of love and consequences based on Conrad Richter's novel and set in a West divided by ranchers and homesteaders. The Brewtons are also divided when Lutie sides with the plight of the farmers. Known for playing couples right for each other, Tracy and Hepburn here portray marrieds perhaps very wrong for each other. The results, as always with these two as well as costars Robert Walker and Melvyn Douglas, are fascinating to watch.
