Stunning adaptation of Theodore Dreiser's An American Tragedy garnered six Academy Awards (including Best Director and Best Screenplay) and guaranteed immortality for screen lovers Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor. Clift stars as George Eastman, a poor man determined to win a place in respectable society and the heart of a beautiful socialite (Elizabeth Taylor). Shelley WInters plays the factory girl whose dark secret threatens Eastman's professional and romantic prospects. Consumed with fear and desire, Eastman is ultimately driven to a desperate act of passion that unravels his world forever. 121 minutes
