Last night I discovered my new favorite movie of all time. It’s called “Stepping Out” and stars #LizaMinnelli as a tap dance teacher. Her class includes #JulieWalters (showing off body-ody-ody in an array of jumpsuits), #EllenGreene (using a surprisingly deep voice), #CarolWoods, #AndreaMartin (looking exactly the same as she does almost 30 years later), #BillIrwin, a young #JaneKrakowski and #ShelleyWinters as a sassy rehearsal pianist. It’s campy. It’s terrible. It’s wonderful. Here I present to you the finale (*spoiler* they all get really good at tap dancing), and a random solo dance that Liza has that is so 90s and so Liza. I highly recommend to everyone looking for a movie where you spend two hours screaming at the TV “Wait...what???”

When Shelley Winters wrote her first autobiography, she dedicated an entire chapter about the making of ‘A Place In The Sun.’ She wrote of severe insecurity that manifested from her character’s[Alice Tripp] appearance shadowed by the illustrious Elizabeth Taylor’s [Angela Vickers]. Shelley had pleaded with George Stevens(Director)to make her character less dowdy, that the reference wasn’t necessary for the role. Stevens wouldn’t hear of it, and made Taylor even more glamorous.
Montgomery Clift was sympathetic to Winters’ pleas, but in the end they all knew one thing,- they had a winning Film!
Looking over the title listings for the July Category it’s actually this Film that I return to more often than any other; ‘A Place In The Sun’ is a reminder of ‘the duty of patience.’
The Film was based on Theodore Dreiser’ ‘An American Tragedy.’ I had read the book, loved the book, took note of the book, and was not disappointed with the Film.
It’s easy to dismiss Films adapted from books, just on the premise of abbreviated content, but Stevens was able to employ the strong messages within a two hour framework.
‘A Place In The Sun’ requires no formal introduction, whether you’ve seen it or not, you’re familiar with the title. The Film has a secure position in the pantheon of highly acclaimed work, and to miss this cinematic experience is, in short, a visual loss.

64. Phone Call from a Stranger (1952)
—The film was the third on-screen pairing of couple Bette and Gary Merrill.
—Bette does not appear until the last few scenes of the film. One online reviewer noted that she “turned her eighteen minutes into an entire film,” and, of course, it’s true.
—According to Mother Goddam by Whitney Stine, Bette suggested that husband Gary ask director Jean Negulesco if she could play the relatively small role of Marie Hoke, feeling "it would be a change of pace for me. I believed in the part more than its length. I have never understood why stars should object to playing smaller parts if they were good ones. Marie Hoke was such a part." 💙
