trailer tuesday

in honor of the arrival of june in texas, this week's entry is for martin ritt's the long, hot summer (1958). an amalgamation of a handful of william faulkner tales, this sweltering, swaggering piece of work marks the first teaming of paul newman and joanne woodward. they married shortly after completion of the film and remained so for the next fifty years until newman's death in 2008.

as triple digit temperatures approach, i will consider it no less than abject failure if my summer is not this completely lurid, a real barn-burner.
