Leigh Snowden in All That Heaven Allows

All That Heaven Allows

1955 NR

Jane Wyman and Rock Hudson star in this supreme example of the glossy Technicolor melodramas of director Douglas Sirk, which were the inspiration for 2002's art-house hit Far from Heaven. Wyman is a repressed widow; Hudson is the virile (and younger) gardener who quotes Thoreau. A scandal ensues when they flaunt their love before their stuffy mid-1950s family and social set.
