The story of a wealthy land owner and cattle rancher, Jordan 'Bick' Benedict Jr. (Rock Hudson), who marries a spoiled and wealthy Virginian, Leslie Lynnton (Elizabeth Taylor). When the two return to Reata, Benedict's cattle empire in Texas, conflicts around race, class and changing traditions rise to epic proportions and test the unity of the family and surrounding community. Much of the tension involves a rivalry with Jett Rink (James Dean), a former handyman who was left a piece of property by Bick's sister. Jett pines for Leslie and when he discovers oil on his land and his fortunes change for the better, his jealousy toward Bick becomes all-consuming.
