Life Imitating Art

Tangent Post: OK, so the Scott Peterson guilty verdict is in. I was thinking, I swear this story sounds familiar. Racking my brain, I recalled this oldie from 1951, A Place in the Sun, with Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor, and Shelley Winters.

"Young up-and-comer George Eastman is thrust into the blue collar life of a rich friend's family business where he's expected to learn the ropes from the bottom up. While paying his dues Eastman becomes involved with Alice Tripp, a simple, trusting girl on the assembly line. When Eastman is finally introduced to high society he meets the gorgeous, sophisticated Angela Vickers and promptly forgets all about Alice. Only Alice won't be gotten rid of so easily - espcially since their affair is about to result in an unexpected and (especially from Eastman) unwanted dividend." --Summary written by A.L.Beneteau {}

Not to give the plot away but art & life both involve boats.
