Thanks to seethelight I was able to see the film yesterday. The film was on youtube ages ago but I was too lazy to see it, and not finding it was just agony, it reminds me of this saying I saw on a bus one day "he who cans but doesn't want to, won't be able to when he wants to".
Anyway, it was a good film, some weak points like Noel Cowards appalling performance and other unnecessary characters.
Elizabeth's character is suppossed to be a 73 year old sick lady, but Taylor is such a superb and fantastic actress, that she totally makes it work. She is Sissy.
Oh and there is the most amazing close up to her eyes on this film, I don't think any other film has exploited her beauty like Boom! which is surprising, I mean if I was shooting Liz Taylor I would make closeups the whole way, I mean how can you not?? Cleopatra doesn't have ONE SINGLE CLOSEUP to her face and it's one of the reasons why it's so bad, we WANT TO SEE THAT FACE!! THOSE EYES!!! What can be more beautiful?? no scenery can, so I'm really surprised at how very little closeups exist in her films.
Behold the mutant, out of this world gorgeous violet eyes:
I didn't understand the expression "The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore" can anyone explain?
