A Depression-era dance marathon with a large cash prize brings out the worst in its desperate contestants in director Sydney Pollack's powerful drama starring Jane Fonda, Michael Sarrazin and Gig Young (who won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar). The competitors -- including a jaded young woman, a drifter and a pregnant farm girl -- push one another to the brink of exhaustion, and finally into the unthinkable. Susannah York and Red Buttons also star.
