This Earth Is Mine DVD 1959 Rock Hudson Jean Simmons Drama Romance Color NR
Stars of This Earth Is Mine: Rock Hudson, Jean Simmons, Claude Rains, Dorothy McGuire
In 1930, Elizabeth Rambeau (Jean Simmons) arrives in Napa Valley, California, from London to stay at the winery owned by her grandfather Phillipe (Claude Rains), and her aunt Martha (Dorothy McGuire). Although Prohibition is in effect, Phillipe believes the winery can endure. Dismayed to learn that Phillipe has arranged her marriage to a vineyard owner next to the Rambeaus, Elizabeth is startled when her cousin John (Rock Hudson) romances her while plotting to sell the wine to bootleggers.
The patriarch of the family, Phillipe (Claude Rains), wanting to keep the wine-making heritage of his family pure, refuses to deal with bootleggers eager for a ready-made supply of alcohol. John, however, is not so righteous, and arranges deals with Chicago gangsters for the valley’s wine supply. Violence, gun play, and wildfires ensue. Elizabeth is caught in the middle, between Andre, the gentle man she is to marry (but who wants to be a priest) and John, the passionate man ready to make a deal with the devil to survive. And John may already have started a family of his own, fathering an illegitimate child with a vineyard worker—and the woman’s husband is not one to go along with the whole sordid mess. Months, and years, of lies, blackmail and conflict follow, ending with the romantic union of John and Elizabeth, and their commitment to the Rambeau wine-making heritage.
