A Place In The SunGeorge Eastman, a handsome and charming but basically aimless young man who goes to work in a factory run by a distant, wealthy relative. Feeling lonely one evening, he has a brief rendezvous with assembly-line worker Alice Tripp, but he forgets all about her when he falls for dazzling socialite Angela Vickers. Alice can';;t forget about him, though: she is pregnant with his child. Just when George';;s personal and professional futures seem assured, Alice demands that he marry her or she';;ll expose him to his society friends.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "A Place In The Sun"Chicago ReaderNovember 13, 2007
A good example of the kind of soporific nonsense that won rave reviews and armloads of Academy Awards back in the 50s, while the finest work of Ford, Hawks, and Hitchcock was being ignored.Chicago ReaderNovember 13, 2007
Hopelessly inadequate as a reading of Dreiser's great novel, and as usual Stevens seems too preoccupied with the story's monumentality to have much curiosity about its characters.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Typically slow and stately in the later Stevens manner.The AustralianJune 27, 2014
One of the great studio dramas of the period and one of this column's favourite films, with haunting performances from Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift.Total FilmFebruary 04, 2013
Most of Dreiser's acrid social satire is smoothed away by Stevens' grandiose style, and it's all too stately to be affecting.Observer (UK)February 03, 2013
George Stevens's meticulously observed 1951 version of Theodore Dreiser's massive 1925 novel An American Tragedy ...London Evening StandardFebruary 01, 2013
Stevens's unsentimental characterisation and the pair's fine performances make this one of Clift's most memorable films.GuardianJanuary 31, 2013
Gripping from first to last.Little White LiesJanuary 31, 2013
Clift's mesmerising, tragic performance only deepens with time.Not Coming to a Theater Near YouOctober 14, 2011
The power of A Place in the Sun's plot, and its most noirish element, is its ability to force the viewer to unquestioningly follow this dream logic.EmanuelLevy.ComMarch 03, 2008
Though not as powerful as Von Sternberg's first version, it still merits attention for the strong perfromances of Clift, Taylor, and Shelley Winters--and that mega clos-up of a kiss, which broke records of erotic imagery at the time.
