Sandra & Peyton Place
Sandra Bullock has agreed to star in a film about "Peyton Place" author Grace Metalious, whose million-selling novel scandalized the nation 50 years ago and eventually ruined the author's life.
...Metalious' novel of sex and scandal in a small New England town, based partly on Gilmanton, was published in the fall of 1956. Although it was banned in several cities, "Peyton Place" became one of the best-selling novels in history and led to a popular movie starring Lana Turner and Hope Lange.
..."She was ahead of her time, but not in a self-conscious way," Foner told the AP. "She was one of those people who told the truth, almost naively talked about it, and got vilified for talking about it.
Did I mention "Peyton Place " Is one of my top five movie of all time .!!!!
