Erskine Caldwell's best-selling novel about the lives and loves of Georgia farmers receives a lusty adaptation in this superb drama. When a poor, white sharecropper becomes convinced that gold is buried on his property, he begins digging on his land instead of cultivating it─resulting in financial and family problems. Robert Ryan, Aldo Ray, Tina Louise, Jack Lord, and Buddy Hackett star. 118 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
