Far from the Madding Crowd

1967 NR

Blessed with undeniable beauty and an independent spirit, country lass Bathsheba Everdene (Julie Christie) has her fair share of admirers. But while a sheep farmer (Alan Bates), a landowner (Peter Finch) and a soldier (Terence Stamp) vie for her affections, only one can win her heart. Directed by John Schlesinger and based on the novel by Thomas Hardy, this sweeping romance chalked up an Oscar nod for original score.
