Editorial Reviews

Steve McQueen and Lee Remick ignite sparks in this impassioned drama about a rootless drifter and the woman who loves him. Georgette Thomas (Remick) arrives with her small daughter in Columbus, Texas, to join her husband, Henry (McQueen), who has just been paroled from the state penitentiary. He'd been serving time for stabbing a man in a drunken brawl. His hopes pinned to a career as a songwriter, Henry returns to singing and playing guitar in bawdy roadhouses. Slim (Don Murray), a quiet-spoken deput sheriff, grows attached to Georgette and the child and does what he can to keep the volatile Henry in line. But, when Henry's tantrums become increasingly more violent, Slim is forced to stop him, bringing the film to a shattering climax.

Lee Remick did a marvelous job on this picture.

If this film just wasn't so darn depressing at times, I would have kept it.

This movie is one I'd put up beside The Last Picture Show, A Small Town In Texas and a number of other portrayals of small town life in the US circa 1950s. The difference lies with the Remick/McQueen combo, the harmony, the tension and the incredible intensity of Steve McQueen at his absolute best.
The McQueen character here is a small-town young man from a lousy homelife, grown up, gone to prison for a brief time, poor and trying to make something of his life with his young wife, Lee Remick and their pre-school daughter, Margaret Rose. McQueen's past plays heavily against him; his hangups, pride, independence and general hard-headedness lead him into troubles with the entire town and the law enforcement community while the endearing Remick and Margaret Rose watch in tender helpless desolation.
This movie belongs on the best-seller list with all the other oldies. It's a better one than most.

Horton Foote's spare and sad drama is given deep heart and soul by the performance of Lee Remick. While Steve McQueen gives the film brawn and brashness, Remick illustrates the wonderful, small moments that make Foote's work so memorable. Remick's scenes with her young daughter -- as she shyly recalls meeting her husband at a dance and later as they suffer through the storms of McQueen's demons -- are touching, warm and finely drawn. And Remick, in her scenes with McQueen, shows the quiet strength that is so captivating in Foote's heroines. And director Mulligan is wise enough to give her talents full resonance. For the memorable combination of Lee Remick and Horton Foote, do not miss this movie.

This is a very accurate portrait of not quite aquiring the American Dream. An often overlooked gem, this film deals with misplaced passions and how they can affect the people you love. I have to give Lee Remick the award for this one. The long-suffering wife of an ex-con (McQueen), she portrays the quentissential southern lady who is trying to be optimistic, in spite of the hand that life has dealt her. I went to school in Houston with the girl who played their daughter (Kimberly Block) and I remember when she was absent in Kindergarten to make this film. Steve does a marvelous job in making us both feel sorry for the character and being quite repulsed at his antics. But kudos have to go to Lee Remick on this one. God bless you both!

this movie really hit me hard when I saw it for the first time. (hit me even harder when I saw it the second time) the black and white gives this film the full efect of a dark drama. Very sad but marvelous story, well done acting, and very beautiful scenery. There are some very touching scenes in this picture, as well as some really depressing ones. Lee Remick did a marvelous job on this picture. The little girl was very good too. And last but DEFINITLY not least... Steve McQueen. I have to say, he was the most gorgeous man ever!! he looked absolutly stunning throughout this whole movie. He did amazing playing the drifting musician with a terrible past. You can really feel his emotions coming off the screen. This is one of the deepest and most depressing movie I have ever seen and this is a must!!!!

Horton Foote's play 'The Travelling Lady' comes to the movies in this 1965 film featuring Lee Remick and Steve McQueen. It's an underrated film, ignored more because of its downbeat, deep sadness, probing one of the downsides of the American dream, than because of its quality. The performances of the lead, particularly the sensitive and radiant Remick, stand up well in the 90s. Her portrait of a disillusioned but hopeful young wife and mother is touching and memorable. McQueen's jailbird is another fascinating characterisation - but no happy endings here. END

This movie is a little slow by today's standards, and not really much of story. It's also a sad, haunting kind of movie. What I liked was the cast, which featured two of my all-time favorite actors: Steve McQueen and Lee Remick.

Remick plays an old-fashioned sweet woman that is rare to see on screen these days. It was not a glamorous role, but I don't believe she's ever looked prettier. Her unspoiled daughter in this film was a nice kid, too.

If this film just wasn't so darn depressing at times, I would have kept it. I sold it, but now kind of wish I had it back. Maybe three viewings were enough. Then again, it does have McQueen (who sings!) and Remick, and those two keep drawing me back. Maybe I just keep hoping it will be better than it is; whatever, be prepared: the story is a downer.

I expected more from a screenplay by Horton Foote, frankly. There are some lovely moments but the overall story is a downer. Lee Remick is radiant and gives the film a beauty that makes it almost worth watching. If you are a Steve McQueen fan then you will probably like it. I found him odious from the beginning and it's hard to care about the story when you never develop a connection with the central character. Maybe it was the horrible singing. It's true that he was abused as a child which elicits our pity but the film should have given us something more about him to like if they expected us to care.

Don Murray is winning as the nice guy who stands by and watches helplessly as the drama unfolds. I kept hoping for a happier ending that would have involved him, but it didn't happen. The rest of the cast is fine. The cinematography is lovely.

The film gives a fine sense of life in a small town in Texas in the '50s. For that and the good performance of Remick I give it three stars.
