Reckless playboy Bob Merrick (Rock Hudson, in his breakthrough role) crashes his speedboat, requiring emergency attention from the town’s only resuscitator—at the very moment

Reckless playboy Bob Merrick (Rock Hudson, in his breakthrough role) crashes his speedboat, requiring emergency attention from the town’s only resuscitator—at the very moment that a beloved local doctor has a heart attack and dies waiting for the lifesaving device.

Thus begins one of the most flamboyant master classes in melodrama from Douglas Sirk (All That Heaven Allows), a delirious Technicolor mix of the sudsy and the spiritual in which Bob and the doctor’s widow, Helen (The Lost Weekend’s  Jane Wyman), find themselves inextricably linked amid a series of increasingly wild twists, turns, trials, and tribulations.
