The 1940s audiences watch a trailer is for National Velvet. The trailer ends with a "G-rating" classification. These ratings were not in use until the 1960s - the filmmakers obviously used the '70s re-release version. See more »
A mediocre attempt to tell Elizabeth Taylor's life
While I found this film watchable and at times interesting, it jumped so quickly from year to year at some points, it was obvious that they glossed over things. Fenn's acting is credible but 'Richard Burton' made me cringe. His accent was affected and he sounded silly while trying to sound profound. I wish the film would have probed a bit more beyond the Hollywood cliche of the lonely star.
