Near the beginning of the film, when Taylor is lying on the bed, she pushes a button on the cassette player at her bedside which introduces John Barry's soundtrack music. However, the button she pushes is "rewind", not "play". See more »
I LOVE LOVE LOVE "Boom"!It is so over the top that every time I see it I literally howl with amazement. Elizabeth Taylor's costumes are eye-popping. Granted, Burton is too old to really be taken seriously, but then the whole film is such a whoop! that you can't take it seriously anyway. I would highly suggest seeing this film if you are a lover of overdone melodrama and just plain ridiculous fun. BOOM! The whole scene where Taylor serves a hideous fish to Noel Coward is incredible. I also thought that the set was incredible to look at. It's stark yet lavish at the same time. Why don't I know anyone like these characters? BOOM!I say.
