Peyton Place (1957)

A cozy New England town becomes engrossed in scandal – murder, alcoholism, rape, teenage pregnancy, suicide – in this sensational box office hit. Lana Turner stars as a widow who finds love with the new school principal (Michael Rossi) while navigating a rocky relationship with her teenage daughter (Diane Varsi). This film screens as part of TCM’s tribute to actor Russ Tamblyn, who earned an Oscar nomination as Varsi’s sensitive boyfriend.
