SummaryAdd a Summary
This movie is NOT a comedy, as noted in the summary provided with the movie. It explores some pretty dark corners in the minds & actions of the towns people.
The destitute drifter Hal Carter (William Holden)hitchhikes by train to a small town to visit the college friend Alan Benson, who is the son of the industrialist Mr. Benson who is the wealthiest person in town. Hal asks Ms. Helen Potts for a small job but the old lady feels affection for him and tells that nobody works on Labor Day. She gives breakfast to Hal and he meets her next door neighbor, the gorgeous Marjorie "Madge" Owens (Kim Novak)who is Alan's girlfriend. Hal is welcomed by Alan who invites him to go to the local picnic with Madge's younger sister Millie Owens. Hal is a braggart, but attractive and "seemingly" gentle, and he becomes successful with the local girls. However, he falls in love with Madge and Alan feels betrayed by his best friend. Interesting parallel of tortured love with Rosalind Russell-
