Have not seen this film in many years and was able to view it on late late late night TV. Montgomery Clift,(Adam White),"Wild River",'60 gave forth a deep power from within his very soul and cried out through out the entire picture as a frustrated writer in his love relations and the conflict with his own father. Adam encounters a woman who seeks his help through a column in the local newspaper and she complains about her husband's performance in bed after so many years and then all things break loose. Robert Ryan,(William Shrike),"The Outfit",'74 is a very bitter man who heads the newspaper and is constantly beating down his wife,Myrna Loy,(Florence Shrike),"Song of the Thin Man",'47 for having an affair with a man ten years in the past. Maureen Stampleton,(Fay Doyle),"Cocoon",'85 gave a great supporting role and spins a close web around Adam. Montgomery Clift showed a great deal of physical and mental pain in this film, but it seemed to make his performance a MASTER PIECE of great acting for all generations to view.

Eager to land a journalistic position, Adam White goes to work as an advice-giving newspaper columnist. His editor, Shrike, takes pleasure in browbeating his alcoholic wife Florence for her past adultery, and assigning his employees journalistic jobs for which they have little aptitude or interest. Shrike goads Adam into meeting one of his correspondents, Fay Doyle, a teary, self-pitying woman who makes a play for him. Adam is torn between his loyalty to the newspaper and his girl Justy.
