When she arrives, the gentle and gracious Laura Belle is happy to welcome her to their home, but not so her husband, the wheelchair-bound Senator Jackson [=McCanles=] (Creator/LionelBarrymore), who calls her a "half-breed" and jealously despises Pearl's father. Peark also meets their sons, the [=McCanles=] brothers: Jesse (Creator/JosephCotten) and Lewt (Creator/GregoryPeck), the latter being a ladies man with a personality quite unlike that of his gentlemanly brother Jesse. He expresses his interest in Pearl in direct terms and she takes a strong dislike to him, and when she eventually submits to Lewt's aggressive advances one night, Pearl is angry with him and ashamed of her own behavior; however, she also cannot help but be flattered by his lust and attentions. This starts a downward spiral that draws them both.
