Near the end of the film, when Helen is wearing the red dress, Charlie comes home drunk and puts the chain on the door. The chain is a lot longer than a normal door chain, at least 12 inches. When Helen comes home later and tries to get in, the chain is now much shorter. It's now the length of a normal door chain. See more »

Lovely Elizabeth in empty soaper
11 October 2013 | by jjnxn-1See all my reviews

Lush not terribly faithful rendition of Fitzgerald's Babylon Revisited is hampered by the miscasting of Van Johnson in the lead. There is no way other than script demands that Elizabeth Taylor would pick the vapid Johnson let alone stay with him throughout the increasingly boorish behavior he subjects her too. Donna Reed fulfills the requirements of her part but it asks little of her skill. The film is beautifully shot with that MGM sheen and Walter Pidgeon gives a terrific performance as Elizabeth's madcap father. Fitzgerald is hard to adapt to begin with and the script writers don't have a firm grasp on the material so it becomes a colorful soap opera but little else.
