Did You Know?
In January 1964 Variety noted that Ross Hunter
bought the screen rights to Peter Shaffer
s play and hired Mike Nichols
to direct, and in February 1965 Daily Variety announced that Julie Andrews
was to star. In December 1965 The Hollywood Reporter wrote that the production would be delayed because Nichols was tied up editing Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
(1966). In June 1967 Nichols and Andrews dropped out of the project, and Hunter made a deal with Richard Burton
and Elizabeth Taylor
to star in the picture. Their contract granted them the right to approve the director and third lead; at the time Paul Scofield
and Dirk Bogarde
were being considered for the third lead. Burton and Taylor withdrew from the project after not being able to agree upon a suitable director. See more
