The Last Time I Saw Paris (18-Nov-1954)

Director: Richard Brooks

Writers: Julius J. Epstein; Philip G. Epstein; Richard Brooks

From short story: Babylon Revisited by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Music Score by: Conrad Salinger

Producer: Jack Cummings

Keywords: Romantic Drama, Child Custody Battle

An American journalist during WWII meets two sisters and falls in love with one of them, marrying her. Also an aspiring novelist, their marriage has troubles and he moves back to America, only to return to Paris after an absence of two years. Melodrama told in flashbacks; good early substantive role for Elizabeth Taylor though Van Johnson is somewhat miscast. The Last Time I Saw Paris relocates F. Scott Fitzgerald's story from the 1920s Lost Generation to the 1940s/50s, and the film suffers because of it.
