Peyton Place 1957
Peyton Place is the picture perfect New England town. Everyone goes to church, everyone shops in the town square, and all the citizens seem upright and happy. But a picture can only capture the surface... and there's a lot going on below the surface.

Everyone was talking about Peyton Place long before Grace Metalious's first novel hit the screen in 1957. The scandalous tale of small-town secrets had transformed the world of publishing while also creating an uproar in more conservative quarters with its tale of rape, seduction, abortion, sadomasochism and illegitimacy. A Rhode Island shop owner had even been arrested for selling it to minors. On film, however, it emerged as a paean to small-town America and a touching tale of young love threatened by small minds, thanks to the clever maneuvering of producer Jerry Wald.
