Trivia

Not a lavish MGM production despite the star power of Elizabeth Taylor and William Powell (in his last Metro appearance, and just two pictures - How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) and Mister Roberts (1955) - away from retirement), this movie went unnoticed by the contemporary film critics at The New York Times.

With These Stars. It Couldn't Be Bad
5 August 2006 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

And it isn't.

William Powell is a tough criminal lawyer. He may not have a lot of scruples but he has money. And he wants the best for his daughter, played by the ravishing young Elizabeth Taylor. Truly, she has hardly ever looked more beautiful than she does here.

She is, as the title suggests, spoiled. And she decides she wants Daddy's recent client, gangster Fernando Lamas. She already has Gig Young but Lamas is more dashing, if a real cad.

Everyone is good. It has a solid plot. The direction moves things along briskly. The score by Andre' Previn is exceptional.

If you don't have access to "A Place In the Sun," probably Taylor's most famous movie from this period,, catch this one. You will be knocked out by her beauty. And her acting is good, too.
