This picture tries to please everybody. It won't.
An engrossing romantic drama that tells a good story with fine performances and an overall honesty of dramatic purpose.
What is to be said of such a picture? The story is trite. The motivations are thin. The writing is glossy and pedestrian. The acting is pretty much forced.
An enjoyable (if heavy-handed) melodrama.
Somewhat engrossing but too much a dull and heavy-handed tragic melodrama.
F. Scott Fitzgerald's tragic love story was brought to the screen with surprising vitality under Brooks' expert hand.
Technicolor Parisian travelogue, MGM-style, that barely skims the Fitzgerald source material.
Lush not terribly faithful rendition of Fitzgerald's Babylon Revisited is hampered by the miscasting of Van Johnson in the lead. There is no way other than script demands that Elizabeth Taylor would pick the vapid Johnson let alone stay with him throughout the increasingly boorish behavior he subjects her too. Otherwise the film is beautifully shot with that MGM sheen and Walter Pidgeon gives a terrific performance as Liz's madcap father.
Way cheesy, but Widmark and Malden make it watchable.
A classic Hollywood tear-jerker. I may have to think again about Elizabeth Taylor's acting. Mostly, she leaves me flat. Being a beautiful child can only last so long. In this one, you can see that Donna Reed is the more subtle actress, the more smooth in her transition between moods -- displaying more ability to show range in real human transitions. But Taylor is impressive here, even if it's more a feeling of shoving in a clutch and jamming the stick, jumping from situation to situation. I'm glad I finally saw this gem. Taylor at her best.
This film wasn't very interesting and seemed really long and drawn out.
