Editorial Reviews

Hollywood's two most famous Taylors take center stage in this atmospheric spy thriller spawned by the early days of the Cold War and filmed on location in London and the English countryside.

Making a move into more adult roles, 17-year-old Elizabeth Taylor plays the giddy young wife of a British Army officer (Robert Taylor). Their whirlwind romance and storybook marriage take a sudden, alarming turn when she discovers her handsome husband is a Communist agent under orders to perform acts of espionage. Torn between alliegance to her heart and to her country, she harbors her terrible secret, hoping her spouse will change his traitorous ways. But when her knowledge is secret no longer, she soon becomes a target.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Format:VHS Tape
Having only seen this film for the first time recently I was pleasantly surprised by its overraul quality and very good performances. Being a big Elizabeth Taylor fan I had read over the years how it was a "False start" for her in adult roles but really Elizabeth handles herself excellently in this very intriguing story of a young American bride in London finding out her new husband is not all he seems.

Based on the novel by Humphrey Slater, "Conspirator", has a storyline often used in previous tense marital thrillers however here it is shaped in a very gripping manner that keeps your attention, in particular in the later part of the film when Elizabeth learns the truth about who her husband actually is. The duck shooting scene in particular is very tense and gripping and the tense feel to this second half really earns the film mor estars in my book.
Elizabeth's performance once again reveals what a fine actress she was. Considering she was only 16 or so when she made this film she does an excellent job against the well honed skills of Robert Taylor. The film benefits greatly from the fine English supporting cast and the location photography in England.
The film is an early but worthy introduction to older roles for Elizabeth and with such triumphs as "Father of the Bride" and "A Place in the Sun" just around the corner she was set for a smooth transition from her child performing years into adult roles.
A good film to include in your collection, done with all the care typical of MGM of that time. Enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars well done suspense film April 14, 2010
By Cleo
Format:DVD
This movie has everything it should: an attractive cast, well-trained talented actors, great set design and camera work. Robert Taylor is a commie spy and Elizabeth Taylor is his child bride. He's supposed to kill her and she knows it but they love each other anyway. Hot stuff!

Miss Taylor was Great, Awesome, Classy playing a young American girl visiting England doing the War and meeting a traitor, a spy not knowing these things and falls in with love him.
She stood up for herself and her country.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous Husband November 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The idea of marrying a man who wants to kill you is a real terror trip. Anything Elizabeth Taylor did when she was young is worth watching because she was so unusually beautiful. Robert Taylor is an eyefull too.

Format:DVD
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) presents "CONSPIRATOR" (1949 87 min/B&W) -- Starring: Robert Taylor, Elizabeth Taylor, Robert Flemyng, Honor Blackman & Wilfred Hyde-White

Directed by Victor Saville

Flighty and immature American beauty, Melinda Greyton (Elizabeth Taylor) falls madly in love with a dashing but lonely English major, Michael Curragh (Robert Taylor). But Curragh has a secret: he's an agent for the Communists. Eventually Melinda realizes that he's a spy and she demands that he cease his traitorous activities. Meanwhile the Party-faithful decide that Curragh must do away with Melinda.

Elizabeth Taylor is beautiful and radiant, but it's Bob Taylor who gives one of his best performances, letting us peek into his character of a two sided coin within his mysterious life.

Interesting Cold War espionage story.
