Movie Reviews

A decent deal for 2.5 movies

""3 classic Signature movies" says the title without explanation of what films you actually get.

You are really getting is 2.5 movies.
-Let me explain:

On the disc you have:
His Divorce
Her Divorce
Last Time I saw Paris

His divorce & Her Divorce (1972): Stars the real-life couple Richard Burton & Elizabeth Taylor in a two-part film telling the story of the demise of an 18 year marriage first told by his perspective of a claustrophobic union of an overbearing wife and then the film is split up as though it were a second film, told by her perspective of an emotionally unavailable and philandering husband constantly traveling for work; moving to Africa and abandoning his family. Really the film is one film that is re-hashed into two films using the first films scenes re-cut into "her" perspective.

You pretty much end up feeling like you are watching the same movie twice with just a *very subtle undertone* of difference in perspective. Perhaps it would be more interesting if you don't watch them back to back as I made the mistake of doing; and was bored to death, having done so. The first film was interesting, the second "version" had me bored.

2 hours and 28 minutes of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor arguing TWICE can be too much for anyone and if you are bent on watching that - at least do it in a more theatrical venue like with The Taming of the Shrew or Cleopatra.

Last Time I saw Paris (1954) Is a very charming movie starring a young Elizabeth Taylor and without the usual high drama you get with many of her films. This is a romantic story of youthful exuberance and of post-war celebrations that becomes a short-lived newlywed life when greed and wealth taint their love and devotion to each other when jealousy kills their trust and passion. A real treat is that Van Johnson co-stars along with Eva Gabor, Roger Moore, and Donna Reed.
A Must See for Elizabeth Taylor Fans.

If you are a collector of Elizabeth Taylor Movies - I recommend picking up this dvd selection for the His Divorce/Her Divorce package which is difficult to find elsewhere & at a very reasonable price here. If you aren't interested in the film His Divorce/Her Divorce- you can find The Last Time I Saw Paris either on it's own or bundled with any number of other movies for a good price as well.

The quality of this collection is pretty decent too!"
