Elizabeth Taylor's Assistant


On the set of Cleopatra, Hollywood's most beautiful star, Elizabeth Taylor, fell into the arms of one of the world's greatest actors, Richard Burton - and she didn't leave. Their subsequent white-hot, scandalous love affair gave rise to the paparazzi and they became the most hunted and photographed couple on earth. Their rocky, passionate, relationship, born in front of the cameras, was subsequently captured in a series of films, including The V.I.P.s and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The last of the great, extravagant stars, flaunting diamonds, yachts and private planes, they continually seized the headlines. They even divorced and married again - only to divorce again - but remain in each other's hearts. This Elizabeth Taylor - Richard Burton story is a no-holds barred account of their undying, but impossible love. Written by Larry A. Thompson Productions, Inc.

Did You Know?


Although the film tells a story of over three decades, it was shot in 20 days. Grant Bowler, who plays Richard Burton stated "Everything was period, wigged, for both of us, so it was long days. Lindsay came at it with absolutely everything she had and so did I." See more »


In the scene where Burton and Taylor are filming a scene for The VIP's, an old style cash register is shown between them with an amount of 50p. The VIP's was filmed in 1964 but the decimal monetary system in the UK was not introduced until 15 February 1971. The cash register should have shown pre-decimal amount in pounds, shillings and pence. See more »

I would like to say something good about this movie
26 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

but I really can't When I saw the trailers, I thought it had promise. I saw scenes where it actually looked like Liz and Dick, but those were about the only resemblances I saw. The script was pretty thin and the acting was pretty pitiful. The script did cover their turbulent lives, but did not provide us with any information that we did not already know. Of course, if you are a bit younger than I am, you may have missed their trials and tribulation. If fact, you may not even know who they were and probably do not care. This movie will in no way inspire you to look further into their lives.

For me, the high point of the whole thing was when Burton died because I knew that the movie was about to be over. Skip this one.
