Raintree County

Raintree County, Elizabeth Taylor is in 11 films to be presented on Turner Classic Movies on Monday, August 23 as part of TCM Summer Under the Stars “series. [Elizabeth Taylor schedule.]

Interestingly, despite the fact that Taylor is one of the greatest movie stars ever, she appeared in a few (to the best of my knowledge) is still hard to find titles. Young Toscanini Is Franco Zeffirelli (1988) Available on video in the U.S.? They are Guardians of the Night (1973) and Ash Wednesday (1973) readily available?

Unfortunately, none of these titles will be displayed in traditional Chinese medicine, but one that most probably have not heard of despite its stellar cast: Brian G. Hutton ‘s X, Y & Zee (1971), a bizarre psychological drama in which Taylor co-stars with Michael Caine and Susannah York.

Although hardly what I would call a great movie, X, Y & Zee is an intriguing portrait, cynical, dysfunctional human relationships: married couple-Taylor Caine, Caine York, seductive / seducee Taylor York. It’s definitely worth it, especially since both Taylor and New York are excellent. As a plus, the support team includes Margaret Leighton and John Standing.

Despite the presence of Joan Bennett, the father Vicente Minnelli’s Bride (1950) is the kind of family film that can only be saved by an invasion of flesh-eating zombies. As far as I’m concerned, the old MGM sensitivity Andy Hardy is the material that nightmares are made.

On the other hand, Life with Father (1947) – a statement from Warner Bros. – has humor eccentric enough to be very nice. The fact that the values of the film production are first rate, and William Powell (as the father irreligious) and Irene Dunne are in good shape certainly helps.

Clarence Brown’s National Velvet (1945) left me cold, but Fred M. Wilcox ‘s Lassie Come Home (1943) left me with watery eyes. I worried more than collie that on most humans in most films of MGM. Ah, I cared about two feet Dame May Whitty, too.

Taylor is beautiful and surprisingly effective at A George Stevens’ Place in the Sun (1951), co-starring Montgomery Clift and Shelley Winters. (Despite a Best Actress Oscar nomination, was less effective in another link with Clift in Raintree County, MGM attempt to create a second disfiguring Gone With the Wind. Clift traffic accident during the filming took place.)
