VERY GOOD 1956 film with several talented actors in Douglas Sirk directed production. Almost bailed after about 1/2 hour - but glad I stayed with this classic film.

Ever wonder where the 1970s soap opera "Dallas" came from? It's all here, in the DNA of this 1950s treasure.

Dorothy Malone got an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in "Written on the Wind" in 1957. This is one of the best films of director Douglas Sirk. The script is great and the other cast members are Rock Hudson and Lauren Bacall. Now this should peak your curiosity about the film. I think it is a winner!
