At one stage, Vivien Leigh, Patricia Neal and Alan Bates were in the running for the leads.See more »
Miscellaneous: Throughout the movie, the fox is referred to as male. After the fox has been shot, it is shown strung up by its hind legs before Paul starts skinning it, and you can see it is actually a vixen.See more »
Paul Renfield:Maybe you need a man around the place... make things more efficient.
Ellen March:It isn't a question of efficiency. We just don't believe in working that hard.
Paul Renfield:Why did you start?
Jill Banford:Oh... um... The good life, independence, and that sort of thing...
Paul Renfield:Tell me. Have you ever tried talking to them?
Jill Banford:To...?
Paul Renfield:The chickens. Grandpa did it all the time. He used to go out there and he'd have a real heart-to-heart with them about how they weren't doing well by him, and how he's spending good money for feed. And the next morning there'd be eggs all over the place.

Pretty good!!, 30 June 2003
Author: chaplins_charlie from USA

I can't really remember why I sat and watched this movie years ago. I guess because it was late at night and there was nothing else to watch on t.v. The movie is about two women who live in a log cabin in the middle of the woods during the whitest and coldest winter. It is not really obvious that they are lesbians, they just look like good friends at first, but then the secret gets out and catches you by surprise(especially that explicit scene where they make-out on the bed and then one of them starts to kiss the other on the neck, shoulders and chest). All hell breaks loose when one of the lovers soon becomes romantically and physically involved with a man who wanders slowly but painfully into their lives. The other woman gets jealous and will stop at nothing to win the heart of her lesbian lover back!! Pretty good acting!!
