Seriously flawed movie still worth watching for Taylor, Reed, and Pidgeon.
7 November 1999 | by gcamp3279See all my reviews

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.
