Gino hired Bene when he was just a boy and treats him like a son – planning on giving him the entire operation when the time comes – Bene being his true son which he has long planned as he has always seen Bene marrying his now twenty-one year old daughter, Angie, although neither Bene or Angie has ever said anything to Gino about it or has ever needed to say anything to the other in it never coming to pass in not feeling that way about the other. As Rosanna has long passed, and as Angie is away at school in Boston, Gino has made the decision to marry Rosanna’s sister Gioia in Italy without the two even having met beforehand, she who will move to Nevada to live on the farm. Although Gino and Gioia both want the marriage to work, obstacles are raised in it truly being able to work. Knowing it or not, Gino wants her to be “Rosanna”, who she is not either in true being or in temperament. As hard as Gino tries to please Gioia, his efforts always seem to be what he wants for her and not what she really wants. And while Gioia wants to be treated like a true human being and not the spirit of her dead sister, she also does not want her life mapped out for her like Gino seems to have done. Watching from the sidelines, Bene begins to develop feelings for Gioia himself, feelings which he knows can’t continue as long as he remains in Gino’s employ and remains Gino’s friend.
Plot: A widowed Nevada rancher goes to Italy and marries the sister of his deceased wife and brings her back to the ranch, but his haunting memories of his lost love and her tendency to drift away to other men cause the two to have a tough time at keeping a marriage together.

An elemental film, starting with the title. Anna Magnani was a force of nature, so the setting in the rugged Nevada mountains is apt, for this highly melodramatic tale. The passions of the characters are paralleled by images of raging rivers, rearing wild horses, and sheep giving birth, to the thunderous chords of Tiomkin’s score. Several years earlier Magnani won an Oscar for her performance in The Rose Tattoo, and in this film she again dominates the screen. One of the most touching scenes is a quiet one at the beginning of the film, when she makes a connection with her niece, sensitively played by Dolores Hart. Anthony Quinn is enjoyable in this, although tending toward overacting. Franciosa holds his own with the two powerhouses.
Clandestine passions well-presented but not altogether convincing…
Anthony Quinn is solid playing a sheep-farmer near Reno–still grieving after the death of his beloved wife–who marries his sister-in-law and brings her over from Italy. Vittorio Nino Novarese’s story, which turns into a love-triangle after the new wife falls for the farmer’s unofficially-adopted son, may have had some literary freshness…but on-screen the drama which slowly plays out looks like scraps from other pictures. The sheep-farm milieu is interesting if uncompelling, and certainly the brawling Italian family has been seen (and heard) before. The secretive lovers thread recalls Eugene O’Neill’s “Desire Under the Elms” (a 1930s play filmed one year after this picture), and although Anna Magnani and Anthony Franciosa give their all to their roles, the relationship between the new Mrs. and the ranch-hand doesn’t quite convince. Franciosa has seldom been so rugged and handsome, but what exactly does this strapping young man see in this Old World, somewhat-forlorn lady who is trying to learn English and fit in with this family? It’s the missing piece to this puzzle which is never solved, and director George Cukor (doing uncharacteristically unsubtle work) bulldozes straight ahead without looking back. Good-looking melodrama with luscious scoring, some amusing family dynamics, but no intriguing ideas. **1/2 from ****
