It's the mid nineteenth century in Freehaven, Raintree County, Indiana. John Wickliff Shawnessy (Montgomery Clift) has just graduated from high school at the top of his class, with a promising career as a writer. He is a romantic, principled, and an idealist, believing the story of the golden raintree - after which the county is named - growing somewhere, most likely in the county's swamp area, searching for and locating it which would provide all the answers to one's life questions. An idea passed down from his father, John also has a strong sense of place as belonging, and as such there is much anticipation in the probable marriage between John and his sweetheart Nell Gaither (Eva Marie Saint), a born and bred Raintree girl. However, there is an undeniable mutual attraction on first sight between John and Susanna Drake (Dame Elizabeth Taylor), a visiting southern belle. Despite Susanna's temporary stay in Raintree County which means that she and John may not have a future, they eventually do marry out of circumstance, leaving behind a heartbroken Nell. As their relationship progresses, differences in their life outlooks mirroring the differences between the north and south start to emerge, and which are brought to the forefront, both personally and on a global level with the on-set of the American Civil War. Their relationship issues are also exacerbated by secrets, both facts and beliefs, Susanna is keeping about her family history, with her parents and her black nanny being killed in a mysterious house fire when Susanna was a child.

An omnibus of three Noel Coward tales: the first, "The Red Peppers" (featuring Kay Walsh, Ted Ray, Martita Hunt, Frank Pettingell and Bill Fraser) about a bickering vaudeville couple who form an alliance when some of their company start to needle them, and ends up in some non-amusing slapstick. The second episode is "Fumed Oak" (with Stanley Holloway, Betty Ann Davies, Mary Merrall and Dorothy Gordon) is about a squabbling, middle-class family where Holloway has to contend with a ghastly mother-in-law, a selfish wife and a whining, complaining child and, after 17 years, tells each of them off and departs their company. The third segment is "Ways and Means" (with Valerie Hobson, Nigel Patrick, Jack Warner and Jessie Royce Landis) about a pair of parasites who go from city to city as non-paying guests of wealthy acquaintances. A wealthy American widow is trying to quietly kick them out of her French Riviera home, and the couple, needing funds to get to Venice, hatch a scheme to fleece her out of her gambling winnings.
