Classic Movie Review: The Last Time I saw Paris (1954)


I’m continuing on examining classic movies starring the young and beautiful Elizabeth Taylor in commemoration of her recent passing.  The Last Time I saw Paris is definitely a classic, but a sad one at that.

It’s a movie that lets the viewer fall in love with a young couple’s post World War II happiness and brings them full circle through the demise of their marriage, helped in part from striking a certain amount of personal wealth that only aides in the happy couple’s self destruction.

The idea that personal excess deprives of any personal potential is no new idea, nor is it anything short of actual reality.

4/5 Stars
