Hal Carter, played by William Holden, arrives in a small Kansas town on Labor Day to reconnect with a former schoolmate, Alan; he seems to attract the sexual imagination of all women he meets, including Madge, Alan's fiancée. Holden is 37 and too old for the part, which should have gone to someone in his 20s. Won two Oscars and nominated for three others, including Best Director and Best Picture.
