Details

The final film by the great, yet underrated Robert Rossen (All the King’s Men; The Hustler) is a compelling tale of love, madness, and forbidden desire.

Warren Beatty (Mickey One; The Fortune) stars as a young war veteran who takes a job as on orderly in a local asylum and falls under the spell of beautiful schizophrenic, Lilith (Jean SebergA Bout de souffle; Bonjour Tristesse).

Boasting a superb supporting cast that includes Peter Fonda, Jessica Walter, Gene Hackman and Kim Hunter, Rossen’s delicate and powerful film is one of the most under-appreciated American films of the 1960s.
