Storyline

Some sculptors use marble as a medium to create beauty; Edmund Kara uses large redwood tree stumps. Kara has been commissioned to create a statue of Elizabeth Taylor, which will be featured in The Sandpiper (1965). We follow his creative process from selection of the redwood stump to the finished work. After the statue is completed, it is flown to Paris, France for a gala unveiling.

Artist does redwood sculpture for "The Sandpiper"...
29 April 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This promotional short was for the MGM film, THE SANDPIPER, starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Eva Marie Saint.

Since the story takes place in the Big Sur area of California with its giant redwoods, the artist was commissioned for a life-size statue of Elizabeth Taylor that had to be finished within a month. Edmund Kara was the artist and the short shows him working hard with tools to chisel Taylor's features into the redwood. The finished art is revealed at a press conference where Richard Burton unveils the statue which had been shipped, first by plane, then by ship to its destination.

Nothing distinctive about this, which should have been filmed in color to get the full impression of the sculpture.
