A PLACE IN THE SUN (dir: George Stevens, Not Rated) - Bart says, "George Stevens was one of those hugely respected 'Name Above The Title' old Hollywood directors like Frank Capra, John Ford or Howard Hawks, but nobody really cares about him anymore. Theodore Dreiser was one of those much-talked about early 20th Century American writers like Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner or John Steinbeck whose novels were destined for immortality, but nobody really cares about him anymore. So it's not surprising that Stevens' greatest film is an adaptation of Dreiser's masterpiece An American Tragedy, and each succeeding generation of cineaste seems to care less and less about it. Please watch this movie and save it from oblivion, because it's got Elizabeth Taylor, Montgomery Clift, and a scene-stealing Shelley Winters at their peaks of beauty and acting ability. Plus, you need to see the oft-referenced and justly famous boat capsizing scene for yourself."
DETECTIVE STORY (dir: William Wyler, Not Rated) - Bart says, "It's all set over the course of one day inside a police headquarters, but you won't realize until you've gotten to the end and haven't once left the precinct that this thing must be based on a play. Kirk Douglas is the uncompromising police detective who's had it about up to here with 'proper procedure' and all those lawyers with their 'innocent until proven guilty' nonsense which allows criminals to go free. Watch him bully his way to justice in this action-packed thriller filled with memorable characters and several intertwining plots that center around the question of whether it's better to punish or forgive the moral lapses of others."
