Cary Grant (North by Northwest), Frank Sinatra (From Here to Eternity) and Sophia Loren (Two Women) set the screen ablaze with a burning passion in director Stanley Kramer’s (Judgment at Nuremberg) epic The Pride and the Passion.

Set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, Cary Grant stars as Captain Anthony Trumbell, a British soldier tasked with securing a large cannon abandoned by the Spanish army when Napoleon’s troops marched through and conquered Spain. The cannon, believed to be the largest in the world, would help England in their fight against the French. With the aid of peasant rebels lead by Miguel (Frank Sinatra) and Juana (Sophia Loren), Trumbell must first agree to help them restore the gun to defeat the French on Spanish soil.

The Pride and the Passion is directed by nine-time Academy Award nominee Stanley Kramer from a screen story and screenplay written by Edna Anhalt and Edward Anhalt based on the C.S. Forester novel The Gun, photographed by five-time Academy Award nominee Franz Planer (Champion, Roman Holiday) and features supporting performances by Theodore Bikel (My Fair Lady), John Wengraf (Judgment at Nuremberg) and Jay Novello (What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?).

Striking a zeitgeist nerve, Wild in the Streets stars Christopher Jones (Ryan’s Daughter) as Max Frost, rock singer and poster boy for the counterculture revolution of the 60’s. While performing with his band The Troopers at a political rally for Senate candidate Johnny Fergus (Hal Holbrook, Into the Wild), Max seizes the opportunity to spout his own political philosophies which include, among other things, that the voting age should be lowered to 14.

And thus begins the tale of Max’s meteoric rise. But as he moves further and further into uncharted waters, first as a voice for the youth movement (or is he just a mouthpiece for opportunist politicians?) and then as a nominee for President of the United States, Max will not bend to the will of the old guard. Instead he begins implementing his own ideas of what would make a better world, including “re-education camps” for those over the age of 35 along with a liberal dosing of LSD.

Wild in the Streets, directed by Barry Shear (Across 110th Street), co-stars Shelley Winters (The Night of the Hunter) as Max’s mother; Millie Perkins (The Diary of Anne Frank) as Senator Fergus’ daughter Mary, and Richard Pryor (Silver Streak) as Stanley X, The Troopers’ drummer.
