A PLACE IN THE SUN
1951, Paramount, 122 min, USA, Dir: George Stevens

Montgomery Clift delivers arguably his finest performance as a tormented young man in love with socialite Elizabeth Taylor, but weighed down by his past fling with factory girl Shelley Winters. Superb, heartbreaking adaptation by director George Stevens of novelist Theodore Dreiser’s An American Tragedy. Winner of six Academy Awards, including Best Director for Stevens.


SUDDENLY, LAST SUMMER
1959, Sony Repertory, 114 min, USA, Dir: Joseph Mankiewicz

Director Joseph Mankiewicz’s version of Tennessee Williams’ notorious play stars Montgomery Clift as a famous New Orleans brain surgeon who uncovers wild tales of homosexuality and cannibalism when called in to operate on Catharine Holly (Elizabeth Taylor) by her aunt Violet Venable (Katharine Hepburn).
