The Country Girl

1954 Rated NR 1hr 44m

Once the toast of Broadway, washed-up thespian Frank Elgin (Bing Crosby) drinks himself into oblivion until red-hot director Bernie Dodd (William Holden) attempts to revive his career. An admirer of Elgin, Dodd begs the actor to sober up for the starring role in a new play. Meanwhile, Elgin's domineering wife, Georgie (Grace Kelly), saps her husband of all confidence. Kelly won an Oscar for her role in this adaptation of Clifford Odet's play.
