Product Description

Product Description

Elizabeth Taylor is Zee Blakeley, the wife of eternally philandering Robert (Michael Caine), in this story of swinging Londoners directed by Brian G. Hutton (Where Eagles Dare). When Robert’s fancy for the beautiful young widow Stella (Susannah York, Tom Jones) threatens to break up her marriage, Zee takes matters into her own hands to try to gain the advantage in their tumultuous relationship. Taylor plays the vulgar, loud and shrewish wife with great relish in the role, her star persona illuminating every scene, making her fun to watch no matter what outrageous lengths she goes to in her bid to eliminate her husband’s mistress. Written by Edna O’Brien (Girl with Green Eyes).

Synopsis

This cautionary tale of extramarital indiscretions finds a threatened and desperate wife lashing out in order to salvage a faltering marriage. An upper-crust couple living the high-life in post-'60s London, Zee (Elizabeth Taylor) and Robert (Michael Caine) Blakely's love-hate relationship is beginning to leave Robert longing for something more. Setting his sites on unassuming country girl Stella (Susannah York), Zee soon catches on and quickly begins scheming to bring the newfound romance crashing to the ground.

There are so many great lines in this film. Watch agog as Liz snorts with derision at everyone in her path ... her battered Capri, inspired "casting" ! I remember when I first saw the film at the cinema (Kings Road) with, probably, quite a gay
audience and everyone laughed out loud when she pulled up in this car, bright red with a HUGE dent in the side.
Liz oscillates from harridan to wounded baby bird, with hardly a breath between the two. Caine and York just sidelong players, both quite fitting the bill.
Margaret Leighton plastered in every shot in metallic afro-wig and vast sunglasses a revelation .. her best line, in response to someone who says "I thought you were you giving a small party ?"
ML = "Not a small party, just small people" ... ha!

Buy and watch and enjoy.

Based on a novel by the Irish writer Edna O'Brien, who also did the screenplay, the Brian G. Hutton (WHERE EAGLES DARE) film focuses on a toxic marriage between a controlling but vital wife (Elizabeth Taylor) and her philandering spouse (Michael Caine) that reaches a crucial state when he falls in love with a quiet young widow (Susannah York). Taylor is pretty awesome here in one of her best performances, what one refers to as a tour de force (she won the Italian Oscar for best actress for her work here) and a force of nature, she is. Her Zee is brimming with life to an overwhelming degree so that you can see why living with her could exhaust you to the point that a passive young thing like York would seem like a life raft to Caine. Taylor's Zee is whizzing around to the degree that you're never quite sure if she's genuine in her sincere moments or her devious mind is clicking away, setting the stage for a grander plan. Caine carefully balances his performance, rising to Taylor's near hysteria in his scenes with her and tender in his scenes with York. O'Brien's clever screenplay is full of wit yet still delving into the untidiness of romantic relationships. With Margaret Leighton and John Standing.

The Sony DVD from Great Britain is an excellent wide screen (1.85) anamorphic transfer.

This film is gloriously kitsch in the very best possible sense. The eye shadow and the wigs and the haircuts are mesmerizing and the dialogue is bone-dry, relentless and genuinely funny. Taylor was born to play this role (one cannot help but believe this is who she probably really is) and she elevates the part and carries it on her own with just the right partner (bizarrely) in Caine. It is quite an unusual script and York's part gradually slips from grown-up, intelligent and serious, to sad, prissy and very irritating. In the end you want Taylor to put the boot in. Great film, stands many watchings. Buy it.

It's hard not to enjoy Taylor in what I like to call her shrewish sixties. She began it with startling intensity in WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? - a milestone - but carried it on with complete humor and control in a variety of films that just weren't appreciated enough: SECRET CEREMONY, BOOM, THE TAMING OF THE SHREW, HAMMERSMITH IS OUT and this little gem, X,Y AND ZEE. These all contain mean-spirited performances - many with her favorite hubby, Richard Burton - and can be decidedly called extensions of her own overpowering personality, albeit some rather unwholesome ones.
X Y AND ZEE is pure 60's trash cinema, but I say that with the kind of affection I reserve for sensational pictures like FASTER PUSSYCAT, KILL! KILL!, WALK ON THE WILD SIDE, AN AMERICAN DREAM, THE CHAPMAN REPORT, A RAGE TO LIVE, THIS PROPERTY IS CONDEMNED - etc. etc. - where some really good actresses really get to chew up the scenery. Liz was the reigning champion, and an icon for bitches everywhere.
The dvd is a colorful, anamorphic presentation (1:85 to 1) looking faithful to the original US theatrical prints. Nice.

For both stars it is excellent. The story is unusual and the title is great - that is to say the original title which appears on screen rather than the one for the UK market. The writing is excellent throughout and the ending though subtle was way ahead of its time. It reminds one just how good the two main stars were in their younger years. It is a film grossly overlooked.

Wow! These were the days of swinging London to be sure. An amazing cast (sadly both actresses no longer with us) and fantastic story. I love Liz Taylor in this as the crazy, over the top and vunerable wife to Michael Caine. She looks amazing and her clothes really capture the time. Susannah York is the wimpy 'mistress' who steals Michael and plays the part well. Michael is the sexy husband. Everything you would want in a great movie!

Really enjoyed this film. Taylor and Caine worked well together. A bit like Burton and Taylor. Bit of a strange ending but a great film all the same. Great acting from all.
