A Place In The Sun
In 1950, George Eastman, the poor nephew of rich industrialist Charles Eastman, arrives in town following a chance encounter with his uncle while working as a bellhop in Chicago. Although George is regarded as an outsider by the Eastmans, Charles offers George an entry-level job at his factory. George starts dating fellow factory worker Alice Tripp in defiance of the workplace rules. Alice is a poor and inexperienced girl who is dazzled by George and slow to believe that his Eastman name brings him no advantages.
A Place in the Sun
"My husband and I count on A Place in the Sun to provide a beautiful and relaxing getaway each year. And they never disappoint! The owners and staff are very attentive, accommodating and warm (ask Norma for her movie suggestions from their huge DVD selection!). The facilities and our bungalow are always clean and quiet, the pool is THE BEST and the pet-friendly feature is amazing! There is a great dog trail right across the street, too. I can see why this place gets so much repeat business. Can't wait for next year!"
"We love this place. The front dest folks are warm and welcoming, it has the feel of old Palm Springs (you can almost see the old movie stars), the pool is just great and the rooms are fun and clean. We stayed one time with a one bedroom suite-wonderful- and this last time with a small studio. It was clean, pleasant, but it is small. But we saved money with the smaller place.We will definitely be going back. They are indeed pet friendly."
"These folks are great! We hit a deer coming out of Gunnison and just made it to these folks place of business at 1:30 am. They had a nice room available at good pricing. They then graciously extended our stay free of charge,so we could find arrangements to fix our van!."

We dealt with Lauren Buckner, she was absolutely amazing, from day one of my enquiry, she kept in touch at all times, answered any questions we had as we had never done anything like this before, we felt 100% safe when the exchange went through, everything went smoothly and quickly, would highly recommend a place in the sun currency, very efficient but at the same time, they have that personal touch that put your mind at rest and makes you feel safe that your money is being protected. Thank you Lauren, you were fabulous.
Firstly I would like to say a big thank you to Ashley finell. He made the whole process of purchasing my house in France a breeze.He kept me totally informed throughout the whole process, and having done my own research on the exchange rate for the euro I believe I got the best deal using a place in the sun currency.I can't recommend the team enough and will continue to use them for any further purchases where I need to exchange my pounds into euros.
We recently used a place in the sun for our currency exchange.We were a bit apprehensive as we had not done anything like this before.Simon our advisor from a place in the sun was fantastic, very friendly and helpful and set our minds at rest.Thanks so much Simon. We would definitely recommend this company and will most definitely use them again
"Frost," Brian Becker, '79, recalls, "was a magical place." Becker organized concerts for ASSU as an undergrad and has spent his adult career in live entertainment, promoting for some of the top companies in the industry. "We developed amphitheaters around the country. They all had great acoustics, layouts." But none, he says, had Frost's special qualities: "the bandshell, the nature; a beautiful, magical place."
Perhaps the group remembered most, and most fondly, is The Grateful Dead, which performed more than a dozen times over a span of 20 years. The Dead, which had its roots in Palo Alto, first played on campus in 1966 on the back deck of Tresidder. A show at Maples in 1973 is remembered as the debut of "the wall of sound," produced by a massive number of speakers that framed the musicians. Later that spring, they were at Frost, and James Armstrong, a senior at the time, was there. "I saw them every time they played in the Bay Area, but the best place of all to see them was Frost," he says. "A lot of Dead songs would go into a long jam in the middle, wandering jazz-like for a long time. Then, all of a sudden, they would catch fire. We all got Orphic thrills and our hair stood on end. From the stage all the way up the slope of Frost, in the spring sun, there would be a unanimous, audible 'aaahh.'"
Mr. Eastman: I ran into him in Chicago. Marsha: Is he going to lead us in a prayer? Mr. Eastman: Oh, he's not at all like Asa or his wife. He's very quiet, pleasant. Not much education but ambitious. He looks amazingly like Earl. Earl: What's he do? Mr. Eastman: He was the bellhop in my hotel. Earl: Oh fine, I always wanted to look like a bellhop. Mrs. Eastman: But Charles, why do you have to bring him on here? Mr. Eastman: There's always a place at the plant for a boy like that. Mrs. Eastman: But what are we going to do about him socially? Earl: That's easy. We can all leave town. Mr. Eastman (assuring): Well, you people don't have to take him up socially. He just wants to work and get ahead - that's all.
The next day, George is led on a tour around the factory by Earl Eastman and warned about keeping the Eastman name unsullied. He is also expressly commanded to obey the company's 'no fraternization' rule - to dissociate sexual relations from the workplace - and to separate the laboring class from the executive/managerial top of the hierarchy:
One night, caught necking by the police in an open convertible in a deserted woodsy area, they return in the rain to her place. Although Alice informs him that visitors are not allowed in by Mrs. Roberts (Mary Kent) - the landlady, they begin dancing inside to music, emanating from an illuminated radio sitting on the open window sill. The camera slowly freezes on the radio and dissolves to an early morning rooster's crowing with the same shot of the window as George departs - the radio plays static. [The shot of the changing window, seen both at night and the next morning, was deliberately filmed to avoid the obvious - and the censors. Off-screen, George spent the night and had sex with her, contravening the laws of society and the factory - with disastrous consequences that ultimately lead to his downfall.] A loud factory whistle blows to signal the start of a new day.
During an inspection that morning, Charles notices his nephew in the packaging assembly line area, and decides: "This is no place for the boy...I don't think it would hurt to give that boy another position." Charles promises to give George more responsibility with a promotion: "I'm going to move you up...You've earned it." George is invited to a party at the Eastman mansion on the 15th of the next month. Rootless and drifting, George begins to feel like somebody after finding some direction in his life. But he has been brought into a lifestyle and social status that he could not have had without his uncle's assistance. Alice overhears the invitation, and comments that she is planning a party for George that same evening - the date of his birthday.

In the film, George Eastman (Montgomery Clift), the poor nephew of rich industrialist Charles Eastman (Herbert Heyes), takes a job in his uncle's factory. Despite George's family relationship to the owner, the rich Eastman family treats him as an outsider and gives him the humblest job available in the factory and no entree into their exclusive social circle. George, uncomplaining, hopes to impress his uncle--whom he addresses as "Mr. Eastman"--with his hard work and earn his way up. While working in the factory, George starts dating fellow factory worker Alice "Al" Tripp (Shelley Winters), in defiance of the workplace rules. Al is a poor and inexperienced girl who is dazzled by George and slow to believe that his Eastman name brings him no advantages. 041b061a72
