| Okay despite that subliminal '50s message
Elizabeth Taylor is "The Girl Who Had Everything" except an exciting boyfriend in this 1953 film also starring William Powell, Fernando Lamas, and Gig Young. Taylor is Jean Latimer, the gorgeous daughter of attorney Steve Latimer (Powell) who is dating the normal Vance (Young)but falls for her dad's client, Victor Raimondi, a handsome gangster (Lamas). Steve objects - strenuously - but Jean wants something a little less predictable.

If she wanted something less predictable, she's in the wrong movie, because you know what's going to happen the minute she sees Lamas testifying on television.

The film is worth seeing only for Taylor at the height of her youthful beauty, wearing the most incredible Helen Rose clothes that emphasize her beautiful figure. Powell must have had to finish off a contract commitment with MGM.

The message here is if you're a woman, don't search for adventure - you'll only become a tramp and take up with the wrong man - stay with the steady one closer to home and listen to your elders. I suppose to be fair, though, it's implied, probably not intentionally, that you need to find out certain things for yourself. Also, your choices aren't always wrong. You won't find that message here, implied or otherwise.
