A critical and commercial success (winning six Academy Awards Picture in 1951, as well as the first-ever Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture—Drama), A Place in the Sun is based loosely on Theodore Dreiser's An American Tragedy and tells the story of a young working-class man (Montgomery Clift) who is tragically entangled with two women—one (Shelley Winters) who works in his wealthy uncle's factory, and one who is a beautiful socialite (Elizabeth Taylor). Taylor is both breathtaking and radiant; the acting of all three is exceptional. In 1991, A Place in the Sun was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." DVD extras include retrospective cast interviews.

"As Patricia Bosworth points out in her essential Montgomery Clift: A Biography, Monty, though associated with the Actors Studio, was never truly a Method actor, feeling that 'many Method actors never created characters' but 'merely played variations of themselves....' Clift was also, of course, a devastating romantic lead, constantly redefining the erotic pull of vulnerability. His first collaboration with Elizabeth Taylor in George Stevens's A Place in the Sun (1951), playing a desperate social climber to her debutante, is usually celebrated as his greatest pairing; Andrew Sarris called them 'the most beautiful couple in the history of cinema'."—Village Voice
