The Shropshire Hills have never looked more ravishing than in full Technicolor in this unearthly melodrama based on Mary Webb's bodice-ripper. Barefoot wild child Hazel Woodus captivates both the mild-mannered parson and the caddish squire with her dark beauty and soon she finds herself, along with her pet fox, trapped between sterile marriage to the former and hot-blooded passion for the latter. Overlooking the excess, the clichés and Jennifer Jones's dodgy accent, this visually spellbinding romance makes for absorbing Sunday afternoon viewing.
