365 Movies: A Place in the Sun Review

A Place in the Sun stars Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor, and Shelley Winters in this 1951 film, directed by George Stevens. The film is about George Eastman(Clift) who is making it to the top in his Uncle's business, while living a double life. His one life consist of working at his Uncle's factory and being in a relationship with mousy brunette, while the other consist of high society and a beautiful raven haired girl. George's life is going in a direction, he's unhappy with and he's make a decision, that could alter the lives of the people he's involved with. This is a really superb film and it highlights what excellent actors Clift, Taylor, and Winters were. It still baffles me, how Clift never won an Oscar, for this film or any film he was in. He was such an underrated actor and it's amazing, he's not remembered more often today. This is definitely in my top five Monty movies. He really excels in this! The storyline is absolutely amazing as well.
