0 Love It
This umpteenth version of Grace White's overwrought novel, scripted by Charles Lang, follows Scots lass Tess MacLean (Baker) who comes to Pennsylvania only to find that her fiancé has been fatally poisoned by the pollution from a chemical plant. Before matters are sorted out, Tess's new love, a young Mennonite named Peter (Ging), whose family sold the polluters their land, is wrongfully imprisoned for burning down the despised plant. Highly contrived; CinemaScope photography by James Wong Howe.
