The last of the 11 movies in which Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton appeared together. This was a television movie in two parts and soon after that they divorced and married the second time, only to divorce again. They were Hollywood’s golden couple of the 1960’s and their great love story – and scandals – were on the covers of numerous magazines over the years. Screenshots by me.

Another nice film with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Also with famous playwright Noël Coward. Screenplay by Tennessee Williams.

My favourite line from the film: “Has it ever occurred to you that life is all memory? Except for each present moment that goes by so quickly you can hardly catch it?” – Elizabeth Taylor to Noël Coward
