It's fairly common knowledge among movie buffs that Elizabeth's off screen life often mirrored what was going on in her latest film, and this four film's included in this set exemplifies that. In FATHER OF THE BRIDE we get Taylor as a bride as she was simultaneously walking down the aisle for the first time in real life. CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF and BUTTERFIELD 8 (and the original marketing behind both) display Elizabeth's sizzling sexuality onscreen as the Eddie-Debbie-Liz triangle played out in the headlines, while THE SANDPIPER the Burtons, the two most famous adulterers of the 1960s have an affair onscreen. This would make for a decent introduction to the career of the late Elizabeth Taylor, or for the casual fan. If you already own these films on DVD, this release offers no new extras, and therefore there is no incentive to buy this set. (Hopefully we'll see more unreleased Elizabeth Taylor films on DVD and especially Blu-ray in the coming months.)

THE FILMS:
In FATHER OF THE BRIDE (1950) dewy ingenue Elizabeth plays the daughter of Spencer Tracy in this classic comedy about the ups and downs of planning a wedding. Costume designer Helen Rose, who designed Taylor's gown in the film would go on to design her gown for the Hilton nuptials.

Bonus: 2 Newsreels * Production Notes * Theatrical Trailer * Languages: English & Français * Subtitles: English, Français & Español (Main Feature. Bonus Material/Trailer May Not Be Subtitled).

Elizabeth sizzles in CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (1958) as the wife of Paul Newman, whose character refuses to love her. The plot is confusing due to strict censorship in place at the time (in the play Newman's character is a homosexual), however the overwhelming beauty of Taylor and Newman, both at their peak, distracts from this flaw.

TCM has been putting out these four-bys of different actresses and actors. I liked getting some of these old classics that way. I already own Doris Day for instances. So with great anticipation I purchased this one. I checked the box to make sure the films were presented in their original aspect ratio. The box said yes they are. Well, surpise, surprise Butterfied 8 is modified to fit my screen (which is a HD 62 widescreen.) So, here I have a CinemaScope movie in the dreaded Pan & Scan. I wrote TCM about it and their reply was: "You didn't buy it from us, so too bad." In other words unless you buy it directly from TCM they do not stand behind their products. It is not like Wall-Mart put the wrong DVD in the box.

So, be careful - DON'T BUY THIS SET!!!

I'm now worried about any other TCM products since they have no customer service.

It didn't take too long after Elizabeth Taylor's passing for TCM to release a set in her honour, as part of the "TCM Greatest Classic Films" series, their special programme designed to bring classic movies to the masses in budget-friendly sets.

The four films included in this Elizabeth Taylor-themed collection do create an effective overview of Taylor's career path at MGM, from her early ingenue roles to the Academy Award-winning BUTTERFIELD 8, and onward to her collaborations with Richard Burton.

1950's FATHER OF THE BRIDE is the oldest film in the set. In the very first version of the popular comedy, Taylor is Kay Banks, who surprises her family when she announces plans to get married; Spencer Tracy is her harried father who foots the bills (and most of the stress) that will come along with the big day. Special Features: vintage newsreels "Wedding Bells for Movie Star Elizabeth Taylor" and "President Truman meets "Father of the Bride"", behind the scenes notes, cast & crew, and the trailer.

CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF sees Elizabeth cast as Maggie Pollitt, driven to the brink by her estranged husband Brick (Paul Newman) during his father's annual birthday celebrations. The original Tennessee Williams play was significantly watered-down for the screen, omitting the crucial homosexual undertones of Brick's relationship with a highschool friend. Although Taylor is effective as Maggie, she'd fare much better in "Suddenly Last Summer", another Tennessee Williams piece, filmed shortly after this. Special Features: "Playing Cat and Mouse" featurette, and audio commentary with Taylor biographer Donald Spoto.

Elizabeth Taylor always professed to despise BUTTERFIELD 8, though ironically it's the film for which she received her first Academy Award.

Sorry, i can't raise any enthusiasm for this rush release, which is merely a re-hash of Taylor titles already freely available, individually and in collections such as the Taylor/Burton release, and also the Tennessee Williams collection. Although BUtterfield 8 is out-of-print, it is still available with a bit of searching. The Taylor fans will already own these on dvd. For years i have been raising the point that her 50s MGM titles such as Conspirator, The Girl who had Everything, Rhapsody, Beau Brummell, The Last Time I Saw Paris, and especially Raintree County were not available on dvd from Warners, who unfortunately now own these titles. Sure, some of these are now available, UNREMASTERED, on warner archive, which is an insult to Taylor. The Last Time I Saw Paris, in the public domain, has been issued by just about everyone except warners! Come on you guys at warners, get off your collective butts, and do something about these titles, and give them the release they deserve. Also, at the moment, there isn't a single Taylor title available on blu-ray. Hopefully the outpouring of affection following Taylor's death will stir someone at warners to action, or maybe they could be persuaded to give up their rights to these movies, and allow someone else to do them justice, as their lack of interest is appalling.
