Superior adaptation of Irving Stone's biographical novel of the tortured life of painter Vincent Van Gogh; MGM sat on the rights for the book since 1946, and only pressed forward after a successful 1955 art exhibition. The film is perhaps Kirk Douglas' finest role. Anthony Quinn won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor; received additional nominations for Best Actor, Best Adaptation, and Best Set Decoration.
