A Place in the Sun (1951)

An ambitious young man wins an heiress's heart but has to cope with his former girlfriend's pregnancy.

Great film! Seems half film noir, and half tragic romance, with a dash of courtroom drama. And I agree with the comment below - Elizabeth Taylor is simply ravishing.

The chemistry between Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor in this film is fantastic, this film is a highlight of both their careers.

I was so impressed when i watched this. I was kid then and never forgot. After watching decades later, i had same feelings again.
