PICNIC (1956)

It's Labor Day weekend, and fresh off a freight train is William Holden, a happy-go-lucky drifter looking for a brand new start in life. A robust, handsome show-off, Holden has come to Kansas to seek gainful employment in his old fraternity brother Cliff Robertson's family granary. But despite his high hopes and expectations, Holden's ambitious plans soon go away when his sexual magnetism attracts every woman in town, including 19-year-old Kim Novak — the alluring young beauty queen who also happens to be Robertson's girlfriend. Also starring Rosalind Russell, Arthur O'Connell, Susan Strasberg and Nick Adams, PICNIC was nominated for six Academy Awards®: Best Picture, Best Director (Joshua Logan), Best Supporting Actor (O'Connell), Best Music, Best Color Art Direction and Best Editing.
