A Place in the Sun (1951)

In George Stevens' Oscar-nominated movie, Taylor plays a rich girl so gorgeous and unattainable that poor boy Montgomery Clift considers killing the mousey girlfriend (Shelley Winters) he's just impregnated to be near her. Want to see how sizzle-hot a movie can be after 60 years? Watch Taylor's fully-clothed make-out session with Clift at a society dance. "You'll be my pickup," she whispers into his ear. "Tell mama. Tell mama all." Angelina Jolie, eat your heart out.
