Written on the Wind Movie Review

It's all-star soaps in Douglas Sirk's brilliantly saccharine Written on the Wind, with show-stealer Dorothy Malone (way too old for the part) playing a sex-crazed gal trying to wreak havoc among her blueblood family and friends. This all shakes down (after considerable effort at setting up the loony players) as to an accusation of infidelity when Malone suggest her brother's (Robert Stack) goody-goody best friend (RockHudson) knocked up Stack's wife (Lauren Bacall) -- because Stack is sterile! Yoiks. In the end it's all dressed up with nowhere to go.
