Adapted from Theodore Dreiser’s An American Tragedy, George Stevens’ classic drama won six Academy Awards. Montgomery Clift is brilliant as a young factory worker whose upward striving lands him in the arms of a beautiful socialite (Elizabeth Taylor). She introduces him to the life he’s always wanted – but his half-hearted aff air with his now pregnant workmate (Shelley Winters) leads to tragedy. (USA, 1951, 122 min., English, NR, DCP | Dir. George Stevens)
