EP. 203.4 — A Place In The Sun

Amy & Paul are infatuated with 1951’s tragic love triangle A Place In The Sun! They hear Elizabeth Taylor explain how watching Montgomery Clift helped make her a real actress, ask what makes George Stevens a great director, and discuss how the film expertly toys with the viewer’s sympathy. Plus: an infamous Tonight Show moment with Shelley Winters.
