Stevens won the Best Director Oscar for this epic drama based on Edna Ferber’s novel. Taylor stars as a socialite who marries Texas rancher Rock Hudson—despite his sister Mercedes McCambridge’s skepticism—and holds the family dynasty together across decades and against jealous rival James Dean (in his final film); Taylor took top billing above the male leads and became even more in-demand as an actress.
