Critic Reviews of "Splendor in the Grass"Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
A complicated film that never really successfully yokes together the themes of money-making and sexuality, it reveals both Kazan's operatic sensibility and his inability to follow an argument rigorously through.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsJune 19, 2010
This romantic sudser is darker than those of its day, as it shockingly deals with matters Hollywood had previously kept under wraps.Slant MagazineMarch 02, 2009
Splendor in the Grass is a prestigious, top-of-the-line, sensitively-handled melodramatic literalization of the axiom "If you touch yourself too much, you'll go crazy."TV GuideNovember 01, 2007
Youth exploitation pictures were all the rage at the time, and while this is better than some in execution and intent, it's still exactly that.EmanuelLevy.ComJanuary 31, 2007
One of Kazan's two or three mastrpieces, this powerful small-town film examines growing pains, respressed sexuality, and social hypocrisy, featuring Warren Beatty, in an astonishing screen debut, and Natalie Wood, at their very best.Kalamazoo GazetteJanuary 23, 2003
Probably Wood's finest hourTim Dirks' The Greatest FilmsJanuary 01, 2000
