Picnic

"Picnic" is a 1955 American romantic comedy-drama film filmed in Cinemascope, and was adapted for the screen from William Inge's 1953 Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name. It stars William Holden, Kim Novak, and Rosalind Russell, with Susan Strasberg and Cliff Robertson in supporting roles. Joshua Logan, director of the original Broadway stage production, directed the film version.  

Emotions are ignited amongst the complacent townsfolk when a handsome drifter arrives in a small Kansas community on the morning of the Labor Day picnic. "Picnic" was nominated for six Academy Awards and won two -- Best Art Direction-Set Decoration, Color, and Best Film Editing.
