About this item

"Peyton Place" is the sensitive and poignant story of coming of age in a small New England village whose peaceful facade hides love and passion, scandal and hypocrisy.

Based on Grace Metalious' best-selling novel, "Peyton Place" received an impressive nine Oscar(R) nominations in 1957, including Best Picture. Lana Turner's acclaimed performance as Constance MacKenzie, the single mother of a beautiful teen (Diane Varsi), earned her a Best Actress nomination (Varsi received Best Supporting Actress consideration as well). While Constance and the other parents in a picture-perfect New Hampshire town strive to keep their teenagers on the straight and narrow, scandals take place around them: A drunken school caretaker (Arthur Kennedy, nominated for Best Supporting Actor) traumatizes his stepdaughter, which prompts a murder, a trial and the revelation that nothing is as it seems in this beautifully photographed, spell-binding drama filled with top-notch performances.

Commentary by Terry Moore and Russ Tamblyn, AMC Backstory: "Peyton Place", Movietone News: Premiere and Photoplay Magazine Awards.

Timeless Classic

The topics of Peyton Place would be considered tame today. These are the things every town experiences put on to the big screen. The acting is good and mild from a time where the English language was utilized by the writers. A generation brought up on today's "trash & shock" talk shows would not see what the big deal is about.
