      Tom M What were the people who casted this movie thinking ? 20 year old stunning Elizabeth Taylor and Larry Parks ? Larry Parks ??? She is so far out of his league, and yet she's the one who has to lure the lecherous creep. Only reason I watched until the end was that I couldn't keep my eyes off Taylor. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 05/04/20 Full Review Audience Member 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. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Who wouldn't fall for Elizabeth Taylor?? He never stood a chance...
