Edna O’Brien adapted her own novel for the campy 1972 soap opera X, Y and Zee starring Elizabeth Taylor (Cleopatra), Michael Caine (Dressed to Kill), and Susannah York (Images) as the three points of a triangle that has very little to do with love. Taylor’s a sharp-tongued vulgarian, determined to break up her architect husband’s latest affair, even if it means seducing his mistress herself.

Director Brian G. Hutton coaxes out every bit of sophisticated/smartypants humor his trio of superb stars can provide; cinematographer Billy Williams (Sunday Bloody Sunday) and composer Stanley Myers (Take a Girl Like You) bring on the gloss.

As a bonus feature, the Blu-ray has an isolated music track.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to head over to the Twilight Time site or that of distributor Screen Archives NOW so you can put in your prebook order!
