"Peyton Place" is the story of Allison MacKenzie (Diane Varsi) who fought to get out of her not so serene New England town. When she finally grew up she moved away to New York for life in the fast lane. Allison is drawn back home at the last minute to help her friend, Selena Cross (Hope Lange). As she returns home the memories of her mother, Constance MacKenzie (Lana Turner) who had a lustful relationship with the school principal, Mr. Harrington (Leon Ames). Selena was even an outcast, growing up in an improvised area of town. Unlike Allison, Selena grew up and was unable to escape the small New England town of Peyton Place and married Cory Hyde (Edwin Jerome) who turned into an abusive drunk. Now Selena is on trial for murder and only Allison can help her, thus bringing her back home!
