    Description

    A Place in the Sun (Paramount, 1951). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Elizabeth Taylor initially felt ill at ease working in the impassioned scenes with Montgomery Clift "because Monty was the New York stage actor and I felt very much the inadequate teenage Hollywood sort...and hadn't really acted except with horses and dogs." They became life-long friends after Clift eased her fears. Taylor was also challenged by the demands of the role and the style of director George Stevens. "He didn't make me feel like a puppet. He was an insinuating director. He gave indications of what he wanted but didn't tell you specifically what to do or how to move." Shelley Winters also appreciated Stevens' way of directing. "He would discuss the scene, but not the lines, and would photograph the second or third rehearsal so the scene had an almost improvisatory quality." Both actresses liked watching rushes with Stevens at night. Winters said, "Stevens would print several takes of each scene and then explain to us why one was better than the other. The whole experience was a joy." Clift, on the other hand, thought that Stevens was nothing more than a "craftsman," with his biggest complaint being about the direction of Winters' character. Clift and Winters were both nominated for acting Oscars and the film earned a Best Director statuette for George Stevens. The poster had pinholes in the borders with one in the background, and slight loss in the crossfolds. Touchup has been applied to the folds. Very Fine on Linen.
