5.0 out of 5 stars Heady Burton and Taylor days !
The four movies contained are an excellent contrast of the Burtons in their hayday,looking fab and the acting is pretty good too. Very difficult to get your hands on these so its a great collection for the fan of these two super stars/actors.

2.0 out of 5 stars Conscientious and dull
A disappointment for Greene fans, or at least this one. I found this movie conscientious, slow and obvious, and the acting duo of Burton and Taylor didn't help. Burton's usual tired self loathing seemed phoned in. Taylor's lack of depth gave him nothing to play off of, assuming he was ready to try. She was so carefully made up and coiffed that one was always aware that it...

A disappointment for Greene fans, or at least this one. I found this movie conscientious, slow and obvious, and the acting duo of Burton and Taylor didn't help. Burton's usual tired self loathing seemed phoned in. Taylor's lack of depth gave him nothing to play off of, assuming he was ready to try. She was so carefully made up and coiffed that one was always aware that it was a star turn for Taylor. And the movie is long. What would have been interesting, and might have made an effective movie although it would never have happened, would have been to cast Guinness in Burton's role and Burton in Guinness' role. Yes, Haiti was awful then. And, yes, Haiti is awful now. But no matter how serious the message, a movie's first responsibility is to be well made and effective. The Comedians tries way too hard to be "meaningful."

Has anything really changed in Haiti? I wonder. Shocker was I thought Taylor was imitating a FRENCH accent and turns out she is GERMAN!Didn't sound German at all
OK movie if you lived thru that era which I did. Nothing special but for a lazy Sunday Afternoon....OK

Great movies. Richard Burton and Elisabeth Taylor were great actors and they prove it in these movies. They were borned to play together.
