Splendor in the Grass

Splendor in the Grass is a 1961 film which tells the story of a repressed girl in a small town in Kansas in 1928 who refuses to give in to her boyfriend's demands for sex. It stars Natalie Wood, Pat Hingle[?] and Warren Beatty.

The movie was written by William Inge and directed by Elia Kazan.

It won the Academy Award for Best Writing, Story and Screenplay - Written Directly for the Screen, and was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role (Natalie Wood).

The title comes from a line in the poem Ode on Intimations Of Immortality From Recollections of Early Childhood by William Wordsworth:

Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind
