An ambitious epic that traces the rising and falling fortunes of two generations
of Texans. Miscegenation, moral dissipation, racism, the oppression of
women....a variety of topics are brought forth during the film's 201-minute
running time. The core of the film is actually the relationship between Bick
Benedict and his wife Leslie. It is through them that we follow the film's
themes of generation, conflict and social change. However, it is Jett Rink, whom
audiences remember particularly in the early scenes when he is striding out on
his small piece of land or when he comes to tell Benedict that "my well came in
big." He puts his oily hand on one of the white columns of Benedict's porch and,
unemphatically crystallizes the theme of the film - the muddy thumb prints of
materialism on the pillars of elegance and the coming of conflict between the
aristocracy and the nouveau riche. "You should have shot that fella a long time
ago," a friend says to Benedict about Jett Rink. "Now he's too rich to kill."
