Young up-and-comer George Eastman is thrust into the blue collar life of a rich uncle's family business where he's expected to learn the ropes from the bottom up. While paying his dues, Eastman becomes involved with Alice Tripp, a simple, trusting girl on the assembly line. When Eastman is finally introduced to high society he meets the gorgeous, sophisticated Angela Vickers and promptly forgets all about Alice. Only Alice won't be gotten rid of so easily - especially since their affair is about to result in an unexpected and (especially from Eastman) unwanted dividend.

Back in the 1970s, I had perfect attendance in high school, until the week before graduation. One morning, "A Place in the Sun" was the Dialing for Dollars movie on a local TV station. I had a major crush on MC at the time, and had read all about the movie, but in those days there was no such thing as a movie on demand. So :::cough::: :::sneeze::: I stayed home to watch it. Have never regretted it!

That dress Elizabeth Taylor is wearing is so beautiful! 
Gosh these two - Elizabeth and Monty - were the most beautiful people ever! Ever. Great chemistry between them, great that they were very close friends in real life. PS: Liz had an absolutely perfect profile, jaw dropping she was.
Elizabeth Taylor is the most beautiful woman :) !
What a great film A Place in the Sun is. Monty Cliff and Liz Taylor did a lot of justice to that movie and the next two collaborations they had. So handsome was he; so gorgeous was she.. One of the best romantic duos in Hollywood history. You can't get any better than that.

Elizabeth Taylor's line while Monty's on the phone "It's me, mama!" is quite funny since Anne Revere did actually play her mother in National Velvet. 
Great party scene with Elizabeth Taylor but they cut out a favorite and important part. When she says 'Did you promise to be a good boy. Not to waste your time with girls? ( I never waste my time) Will she let you go out tonight? Will she let you go dancing? Come on - I'll take you there on your birthday - blue boy. She leads him onto the dance floor. They rock back and forth, they twirl and dance into the mix of other guests.

Monty Cliff was a great, great actor. The scene with him playing snooker was completely improvised. No wonder Liz Taylor said "Wow !" when she saw it. No Brando or James Dean without him, yet he has become the most overlooked talent of them all which is regrettable.

8:46 - "Who was that?" "It's your daughter Velvet, of course."
