Tagline: The town they talk of in whispers.

Plot: Henry Bellamanís controversial, best-selling epic novel about cruelty and mental instability in small-town America is brought to the screen by directing great Sam Wood and top-notch cinematographer James Wong Howe. In KINGS ROW, Paris Mitchell (Robert Cummings) gives up a promising career as a musician in order to study psychiatry. But before he ever gets near the psychoanalytic Mecca of Vienna, Mitchell has plenty of cases to study right in his small midwestern home.

Ronald Reagan turns in the most powerful performance of his career as Mitchellís easygoing companion, Drake McHugh, while knockout Ann Sheridan carries the film with her stellar performance as Randy Monaghan, the girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Both will face needless tragedies perpetrated by human hands in this dour look at the home front during WWII.

The fine script, excellent directing, stunning score, and spectacular performances make KINGíS ROW one of the few Golden Era tragedies to stand the test of time.
