Movie Info

Though completed in 1950, Love Is Better Than Ever was held back from release until 1952, due in great part to the "political undesirability" of star Larry Parks, whose career was effectively ruined after he humbled himself before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Parks plays Broadway talent agent Jud Parker, who takes a fancy to small-town dance teacher Anastacia Macaboy (Elizabeth Taylor). Parker wines and dines Anastacia during her visit to New York for the purposes of seduction.

Audience Reviews for Love Is Better Than Ever (The Light Fantastic)

Silly bit of fluff mostly of interest in highlighting Elizabeth's beauty. Larry Parks, not exuding much movie star charisma, is reminiscent of a Mike Todd character which would have meant nothing to audiences at the time but considering Taylor's eventual marriage to him in hindsight it adds a little something to the film. It sorely needs an injection of some kind of pizazz.
