Duel in the Sun:
Pearl Chavez (Jennifer Jones), is a stunning young girl who after her father's death, is taken in by distant relative Laura Belle McCanles (Lillian Gish), whose husband, Senator (Lionel Barrymore), is a Texas cattle baron of immense wealth. She soon finds herself attracted to the two McCanles sons: the magnetic hell-raiser Lewt (Gregory Peck) and the educated, restrained Jesse (Joseph Cotten). Almost immediately, Pearl becomes the object of an emotional tug-of-war between the virtuous sons. Since she is presumed to have inherited her mother's hot-blooded disposition, she's tagged as a bad girl by Lewt, who quickly makes a pass at her without success. The two brothers become bitter rivals after Pearl comes to live on their sprawling ranch and disturbs their dynasty.
Still recovering after his throw from a bull named Sunshine, Junior Bonner (Steve McQueen), a drifting rodeo star, is on his way to Arizona to join his family for the Frontier Days Celebration. When he arrives however, he finds his house abandoned and learns that his father, Ace (Robert Preston) is hospitalised. Despite medical orders, Ace joins the rest of the family at the Frontier Days parade and rodeo festivities to watch Junior challenge Sunshine once again. But this time, Bonner is determined to beat the bull so that his father’s dream of building in Australia can become a reality.
