Ruby Gentry (1952) Jennifer Jones, Charlton Heston, Karl Malden | Drama, Romance

In this video

Jennifer Jones offers a virtual reprise of her sultry performance in Duel in the Sun as the titular heroine of Ruby Gentry. Born into a poor-white-trash Southern family, Ruby intends to improve her lot by marrying into wealth. Her casual beau Boake Tackman (Charlton Heston) considers Ruby unfit for marriage, but prosperous businessman Jim Gentry (Karl Malden) is eager and willing to make her his wife. Gentry dies in an accident, and the consensus of opinion is that he was killed by the covetous Ruby. For some reason, this turns Boake on, and he renews his torrid romance with the widow Gentry. Ruby’s crazed brother, Jewel (James Anderson), puts an end to this affair with a shotgun, provoking a violent response from Ruby and a “Lady or the Tiger” ending.

  1. Jennifer is great but she's laying it on thick with the tough country gal postures and reactions. Is she going to do this the whole time? She was great with Gregory Peck in 'The Man In The Grey Flannel Suit'. I'm just tiring of the square shouldered, tough swagger and take-it-from-nobody-talk. I get it.

  2. as for acting no one can ever act better than jenny jones ,as for looks she is uniquely universal ,as for ouvre its the best in hollywood ! she has done everything you can imagine from duel in sun to last train from termini ! god bless the great artist !portrait of jenny in virtual reality is more incredible than ever !

  3. This movie , to me , is a masterpiece. The story is most unusual but believable, the actors are great, the quality
    of filming perfect … even the music is excellent. Unforgettable. And to be seen again….Thx fo loading.
