Cat: Loved Taylor in that hot white dress, so saucy and vixen-like, and the technicolor look of the movie make her and Paul Newman look even more gorgey than normal. Liz seems so perfect for anything Tennessee Williams.
Another Liz fave film: A PLACE IN THE SUN with pre-accident Monty Clift and the whiny-as-hell Shelley Winters, whom I was glad to see hit with an oar and drowned in the lake.
Years later I thought she looked great when she let her white/silver/gray hair come out. It looks hot with her kind of skin and dark eye brows.
