“Suddenly, Last Summer” is the one with the white bathing suit. Montgomery Clift is in it too. It has a colorful and sordid plot. Liz is a mental patient and Katharine Hepburn is her aunt. Her male cousin was using both of them as sexual bait for Spanish street urchins, but the latter turned the tables on him and cannibalized him (yes!), the sight of which drove Liz crazy. Clift is the psychiatrist who saves her from a lobotomy because Hepburn wants to eliminate her memories.
I had the good fortune to spend a day with Richard, one during which he was relatively sober, but not too sober. He was with a good friend of mine, Erben Jenkins, a distant relative of Richard, whose real last name is also Jenkins. He is very charismatic, intelligent and gracious, one who would go out of his way to make little children and old ladies feel important, even though they weren’t part of the conversation.
Hah! Like the endorsement of some 1000 year old hag that no one even remembers will help Her Thighness!
That was good fortune indeed!
That’s the one. I’ve got to see it again, now that I’m not too young to follow it. My memory of it is vague.
I wish I knew how to post photos.
Thanks! I am now going to HTML bootcamp! :-)
We’ve been through one Clinton LizBeth, NO MORE.
She resembled Rosanne Barr (before Barr's cosmetic surgery), staggered, slurred her words and used foul language.
Other than that, she was a very stylish, charming matron (not!)
LOL! How embarrassing for her husband! I don’t know how she could have ever thought she’d be happy out in horse country and fairly rigid D.C.
She was so gorgeous that I wonder if beauty like that is a curse - in that you have to watch it slowly dissipate.
On the other hand there is Sophia Loren who as chosen a different path.
please help me clean my u-know-what
OMG, look at the hoof’s on her. lol
I know she was once beautiful. However, now she looks like a tranny.
She had already quite the reputation of a heavy boozer by that time and it really showed on her, especially her face, already puffy jowls and around her greatly lauded eyes.
What really stands out, though are how very pudgy her hands were.
Maybe I concentrated on them as there were some receiving lines.
Anyway, I remember she wore tent style dresses that came just about or above her knees. They were beautiful silk numbers but seemed to make her look even larger.
Just goes to show, fame, fortune and privilege really count for nothing and she really is to be pitied now.
Once a Hilton, always a Hilton
It’s overwrought, but not awful. The bathing suit scene made a big impression on me as a kid and could be worth the rest of it. And in some contexts, cannibalism can be funny.
I bet she hated doing the Senate wife thing.
“If there are no salmon, what are the poor sea lions going to eat?”
Didn’t you know that severe cases of cankles cause such enlargement of the ankles that garments like pants have to be cut off?
Liz Taylor was and always will be a “broad” and that’s just the way I love her...sorry.
Yeah, but now she looks like Ernest Borgnine.
A couple of months back my Mother who’s 77 sadly looked in the mirror and said to my Dad, My God! I’m so old, fat and dumpy looking. My Dad responded with, “Well look on the bright side, you always wanted to look like Liz Taylor and now you do! True Story.
