Actor Montgomery Clift's career was white hot upon the release of this Hollywood classic which did wonders to ensure his straight heartthrob status while pushing him further into the celluloid closet.

About the film:
In this classic version of Theodore Dreiser's novel "An American Tragedy," George Eastman (Montgomery Clift), the nephew of a wealthy industrialist, is excluded from high society and given a blue-collar job at his uncle's factory. While ascending the ranks of the company, George becomes romantically involved with co-worker Alice Tripp (Shelley Winters). However, when he is introduced to socialite Angela Vickers (Elizabeth Taylor), he quickly falls for her, leading to a tragic love triangle.

Cinematographer: William C. Mellor | Screenwriter: Michael Wilsom, Harry Brown / based on the novel by Theodore Dreiser
