Treadmill Theater: Trudging Through the Classics #8 - A Place in the Sun (part 2)

In Part 2, Montgomery Clift looks more like Tom Cruise, and the movie turns into more of a thriller. Ominous music.

I won't give plot details away, but someone(Ed O'Neill?) looking like Donald Sutherland steps out of the shadows and delivers Clift to Burr. Burr was hobbling around in this movie before he was stuck looking out a window or up to courtroom shenanigans that taught Matlock how it was done.

Not a bad movie - see it for its time capsule of 1951 cultural strata, see it for the love story turned sinister. Also, there are inexplicable ferns at the end of the movie. If you see it and can explain them, that'd be nice, too.

7 to go.
