Producer David O. Selznick’s (Duel in the Sun) re-edit of the Michael Powell / Emeric Pressburger (The Tales of Hoffmann) 1950 film Gone to Earth. Jennifer Jones (Portrait of Jennie) stars as Hazel Woodus, a beautiful child of nature in the Shropshire countryside in 1897. She loves and understands all the wild animals more than the people around her. Whenever she has problems, she turns to the book of spells and charms left to her by her gypsy mother. Local squire Jack Reddin (David Farrar, Hour of Glory) sees Hazel and is instantly infatuated by her, but Hazel has already promised herself to Baptist minister Edward Marston (Cyril Cusack, Fahrenheit 451) as a struggle for her body and soul ensues. One of the film’s main highlights is the stunning color cinematography by the great Christopher Challis (A Shot in the Dark, Arabesque, The Victors).
