"The dialog sparkles...memorable." -TV Guide

"There's a rather perfect blendship at work...Beatty's underplaying stays out of the soporific zone...Liz meets him halfway with a modest, likable portrayal...Touching." -David Cairns, Shadowplay

The incomparable George Stevens' last film, The Only Game in Town (1970), stars the dazzling pair of Elizabeth Taylor and Warren Beatty in Frank D. Gilroy's adaptation of his own Las Vegas-set play. Taylor's an exhausted showgirl fed up with waiting for her married lover to divorce his wife; Beatty's a piano-playing gambling addict who keeps compulsively losing the stake he needs to high-tail it to New York. Together they parlay an instant attraction into a mutual effort to get their lives together-no strings attached. Gorgeously shot by French New Wave stalwart Henri Decaë.

Enjoy the extensive Julie Kirgo liner notes and film art packaged with the Blu-ray disc.

I saw this movie over 20 years ago. I still remember it with affection - it is one of the best movies I've seen. No thrilling chase scenes, no overt sex, no filthy language, no special fx, just smart, sharp, intense dialogue between two people that will keep you transfixed til the end. I want it but won't pay $75+.

A great movie with 2 of the greatest hollywood actors , the atonishingly beautiful leading english actress Elizabeth Taylor and the well known director Warren Beatty.

A nice, relaxing movie ,good dialogues and good performances movie. Not the best E. Taylor's movie, but deserves to be in a collection of her fans.

Why can't we find it in DVD nowadays?

And how come there's only one copy availabe at $100.00?, incredible expensive and incredble unavailable!!!

The odds were stacked against The Only Game in Town from the very beginning. One of those hot properties that got cold fast, Frank D. Gilroy's play sold for a record $550,000 before it even opened, 20th Century Fox throwing in an additional $150,000 for him to write the screenplay: just as well, since the critics slaughtered it and it closed in a couple of weeks. Not that that stopped the studio going ahead with their plans to film it even after Frank Sinatra dropped out of the male lead, banking on Elizabeth Taylor's fading star power in a role that had Shirley MacLaine's name, address and phone number written all over it. It didn't help that Sinatra's replacement, a still youthful looking Warren Beatty, only emphasised that Taylor was getting on a bit to play a disillusioned chorus girl who finds a convenient no-strings arrangement with a gambling addicted piano player turning into love. Hiring a perfectionist director notorious for going over budget wasn't the best move either, but the icing on the cake was Taylor's insistence on shooting the Las Vegas-based film in Paris so she could be near Richard Burton while he was filming Staircase, which saw the budget for what is essentially a two-hander set almost entirely in two locations balloon to an incredible $11m. returning barely 10% of the investment at the box-office. Coming off two hugely expensive flops (The Diary of Anne Frank and The Greatest Story Ever told), it proved the last straw for director George Stevens' career, remembered, if at all, as another of those lousy swansongs so common for many major directors. Amazingly, the film got sort of remade to similar lack of success by Curtis Hanson as the almost equally unlucky Lucky You.Read more ›
