“Earthy,” but not “of the earth” is an apt description of the sultry Tina Louise in Director Anthony Mann's adaptation of Erskine Caldwell's “God's Little Acre.” No writer really captured this earthiness as did Caldwell, whose scorchers were often banned for their sensuousness, and Mann's movie does a good job of transforming this atmosphere onto the screen. It is the story of George Farmer (played by Robert Ryan), who is frantic to find the
buried treasure that is rumored to be on his land. Louise's sultry sexuality steams up the screen for even the most cold hearted. It is Southern red neck country and these characters find themselves right at home!
