They Shoot Horses, Don't They?
Drama based on Horace McCoy's novel exploring the desperation of couples competing in one of Hollywood's dance marathons in the Depression years. Everyone's reason for participating is simple - three meals a day and a chance to win the 1,500 dollar prize. The marathon becomes a microcosm of life with its myriad subplots and characters' lives intertwining. Gig Young won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
