Description by OLDIES.com:

F. Scott Fitzgerald's poignant tale "Babylon Revisited" provides the basis for this film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Van Johnson as tragic, restless lovers striving to find meaning and fulfillment in the bittersweet world of fashionable post-war Paris. In the midst of celebrating VE Day, an army lieutenant (Johnson) meets two beautiful sisters, Helen and Marion (Taylor and Donna Reed), who both fall deeply in love with him. But it is Helen, the hopelessly romantic, free-spirited one who finally captures his passionate heart. Their marriage evolves into a tempestuous struggle as their needs, although identical, are never felt at quite the same time.

Product Description:

Based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald story "Babylon Revisited," this epic romance is a captivating blend of Parisian expatriate high society and the struggles in post-WWII Europe. When war writer and veteran Charles Wills (Van Johnson) meets the lovely and restless Helen Ellswirth (Elizabeth Taylor) in Paris after the war, the two strangers instantly fall in love, basking in the glory of a free Paris. Helen and her father, James Ellswirth (Walter Pidgeon), are eccentric American expatriates living life in high style but always on the brink of going broke. Charles is captivated with the Ellswirthses' reckless and fun-loving lifestyle, staying out all night, gambling and living life in the glory of the Left Bank artistic society. Charles and Helen get married and have a family, but life becomes more difficult as they continue on with their free-spirited and reckless adventure. Elizabeth Taylor is glorious as the lovely young ingenue Helen, who loves Charles in spite of herself. Her stunning costumes are shot beautifully, contributing to the glorious style of this beautifully rendered epic.

Plot Synopsis:

An American WWII veteran relives his memories of the dazzle, romance, and hard times in the postwar City of Lights. THE LAST TIME I SAW PARIS stars Van Johnson as Charles Wills, a war writer who meets a mercurial and beautiful young socialite in Paris, Helen Ellswirth (Elizabeth Taylor), and falls in love with her in the years following the war. This epic romance captures the joys and tragedies of expatriates in café society Paris and features Elizabeth Taylor at her luminous best.
