Review
Previously filmed in 1931 under its original title, An American Tragedy George Eastman (Clift), is a charming but aimless young man who goes to work in a factory run by a distant, wealthy relative. Feeling lonely one evening, he has a brief tryst with assembly-line worker Alice Tripp (Winters), but he forgets all about her when he falls for dazzling socialite Angela Vickers (Taylor). Just when George's personal and professional futures seem assured, Alice, pregnant with his child, demands that he marry her or she'll expose him to his society friends. This predicament sets in motion a chain of events that lead to a number of tragedies. A Place in the Sun won six Oscars, including Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Cinematography.
