The Girl In The Red Velvet Swing is a 1955 biographical drama directed by Richard Fleischer. The film tells the story of Ellen Nesbit (Joan Collins), a 16-year-old showgirl, and the love triangle she becomes entangled in during the turn of the century in New York City. Ellen was a beautiful model and singer who easily draws the eye of every man she meets. When she meets 47-year-old Stanley White (Ray Millard), a wealthy architect, she loves the attention he gives her. He buys her an expensive apartment in New York, but makes it contingent upon her performing on a red velvet swing for him in the living room. Soon she draws tired of him, and begins a relationship with a younger rail tycoon, Harry Kendall Thaw (Farley Granger). She marries Thaw, but White is not over their previous relationship. Thaw is plagued by jealous rage over his wife's previous relationship, and his rage explodes when he runs into White twice in one day. What will it take for Nesbit to escape the love triangle she is entangled in?
