Sydney Pollack

<b>"This Property is Condemned"</b><br>
<br>
Though reviews were mixed for Pollack's second film as a director, this 1966 romantic melo-drama, "suggested" from an early Tennessee Williams one-act play, has a lot going for it. The film, set in the Depression-era South, is beautifully shot by the legendary James Wong Howe and features Natalie Wood in her Golden Globe-nominated performance as a young woman whose sleazy mother (Kate Reid) runs a boardinghouse for railroad workers. The movie also marks the first time Pollack directed his pal Redford in his role as a railroad efficiency expert who has arrived to fire most of the workers but finds himself fired up over Wood.
