Synopsis

Triple bill of classic movies starring Elizabeth Taylor. In 'The Last Time I Saw Paris' (1954), novelist Charles Wills (Van Johnson) travels to Paris to obtain custody of his young daughter. His story is then told in flashback, relating how he arrived in Paris after the Second World War and fell in love with the wealthy Helen Ellswirth (Taylor). The two settled down together, but Wills' lack of early success as a writer and subsequent heavy drinking placed an impossible strain upon the relationship. In 'Divorce His, Divorce Hers' (1972), Martin (Richard Burton) and Jane Reynolds (Taylor) are nearing the end of their marriage after 18 years together. The story focuses on their relationship and the deterioration of their marriage from both perspectives. Finally, 'Father's Little Dividend' (1951) is the sequel to 1950's 'Father of the Bride'. Stanley Banks (Spencer Tracy) has to cope with the prospect of becoming a grandfather. His fears that his peace and quiet will be shattered increase as the big day comes nearer. Taylor stars as the mother-to-be.
