Storyline: Reprising much of the plot of his earlier DUEL IN THE SUN, King Vidor also chose that film’s leading lady, Jennifer Jones, to fill the title role of RUBY GENTRY. Ruby Corey, a poor, beautiful young woman from the backwoods of North Carolina, lusts after Boake Tackman (Charlton Heston), scion of one of the wealthier families in town. Although far from indifferent to Ruby’s charms, Boake opts to abide by his family’s preference for a mate from his own social stratum. Meanwhile, Jim Gentry (Karl Malden), the wealthiest man in town–who also has an eye for the sultry young woman–asks her to marry him.
