Zee & Co.

Not in years have three people more deserved the star billing they get in this Love Story for adults. Elizabeth Taylor and Susannah York both turn in performances that fully capture the excellently conceived characters of Edna O'Brien's original screenplay. Michael Caine keeps up beautifully with the pace set by his femme co-stars.

Not in years have three people more deserved the star billing they get in this Love Story for adults. Elizabeth Taylor and Susannah York both turn in performances that fully capture the excellently conceived characters of Edna O’Brien’s original screenplay. Michael Caine keeps up beautifully with the pace set by his femme co-stars.

The script has Taylor, the ‘Zee’ of the title, and Caine as a long-married couple, whose relationship has turned into a love-hate affair that leads into Caine’s affair with York.

After a half-hearted suicide attempt Zee recognizes the possibility of an actual break but, by accident finding that her rival has her own private Achilles heel, makes a final, desperate move which may answer one problem but presents another.
