Charles returns to Paris to reminisce about the life he led in Paris after it was liberated. He worked on "Stars and Stripes" when he met Marion and Helen. He would marry and be happy staying in Paris after his discharge and working for a news organization. He would try to write his great novel and that would come between Charlie, his wife, and his daughter.Written by

Seriously flawed movie still worth watching for Taylor, Reed, and Pidgeon.
Elizabeth Taylor, Donna Reed, and Walter Pidgeon turn in fine performances in this updated adaptation of F.Scott Fitzgerald's short story, BABYLON REVISITED. Two serious flaws keep this good movie from succeeding completely. One is a seriously miscast Van Johnson. His limited talent does not include the ability to portray a writer, much less one who struggles with intellectual despair. The second and more serious flaw is the movie's ending. The happy ending constructed for the movie is completely out of line with the story's point of view and makes no sense for the motivations of all the characters as written by Fitzgerald or adapted by the screenwriter. The title song is nicely sung by Dinah Shore.
