Last Time I Saw Paris (1952) - Color - 116 min

The LikeTelevision™ Movie channel proudly presents - Last Time I Saw Paris, starring Elizabeth Taylor, Van Johnson, Donna Reed, and Walter Pidgeon. A fun movie that appears to be based on the life of American novelist, F. Scott Fitzgerald, who wrote a bunch of terrific short stories (Diamond as Big as the Ritz is a personal favorite) but is best known for writing The Great Gatsby. The film is a loose adaptation of his time spent in Paris as a shallow rich guy searching for some meaning in his life. (I think it was Gertrude Stein, or Ernest Hemingway maybe... who coined the term - The Lost Generation, which spoke of these idle rich American artists who wasted their talents getting drunk and carousing in Paris).
