The copy I watched was old and definitely showed the age of the film. However, the sights and sounds of Paris and the beautiful Elizabeth Taylor had no problem capturing my attention. If you love Paris and/or Elizabeth Taylor, I do recommend a trip to Paris via The Last Time I Saw Paris.
This 1954 romantic drama movie stars an impressive lineup of names that you will recognize including Elizabeth Taylor, Van Johnson, Walter Pidgeon, Donna Reed, Eva Gabor and a very young Roger Moore. (According to Wikipedia, this was Mooore's Hollywood debut.)
The plot line loosely follows that of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Babylon Revisited and, as the box says, tells the "emotional story of a lost generation and its beautiful people." It tells the tale of two lovers who struggle to be happy and find meaning in the life of post-war Paris. He an American G.I. living in Paris who wants to be a writer. She a wife and mother who yearns for something more and meanwhile lives the party life.
And regarding the blu-ray version? Well, it doesn't exist yet. As a matter of fact, I have not been able to locate any of Elizabeth Taylor's movies on blu-ray.
at the movies!
Order your copy of The Last Time I Saw Paris from Amazon.
