    whos afraid of virginia woolf was them playing two married characers acting together and their off-screen marriage added to the reality of the portrayals and also that movie was not mostly about her as a sex symbol!

  • James Smith

    Elizabeth Taylor will forever be remembered as Cleopatra. Her costumes, makeup, and acting ability were top notch in this film. She was indeed one of the most beautiful women on the silver screen.

    He was, and still is, one of the all time greats! Liz….. I never really cared for. Not that I think she isn’t a good actress, just not what I watch. I have no picks in this one, sorry!

  • James Howard

    I am dating myself. I saw WAOVW in the movies. I hated it,. I saw it ten years later and now include it as one of my all time favorite movies.l

    Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf is truly one of the great movies of all time, but some other collaborations between Liz and Dick are good as well.

    “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” is a tremendous film and I’ve always loved it- Richard gives what I consider the best male performance of all time and Sandy Dennis steals every scene she’s in. But I voted for the not so great,”The V.I.P.s”, my favorite “guilty” pleasure and a movie that I watch two/three times yearly.

    I’ve never particularly been a great fan of ‘Liz’, I’ve always felt she was only as good as her director, that being said, I must admit she was excellent in ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf’, and ‘Taming of the Shrew’ but so was Richard Burton, and I’ve always liked her as ‘Maggie the Cat’ in ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’. Most of her other performances have only seemed mediocre to me, I’m sorry to admit. For instance how could they ever have given her an Academy Award for ‘Butterfield 8′. She even hated that one herself. But my pick must be ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf’.

    I also picked “The VIPS”. It is the easiest film to understand and it really shows Liz in all of her beauty and style. I did see “Taming of the Shrew” when I was in college. WAVW? is just too negative and static, but I did have to stand in a line around the theater when I saw it.

    Ahh, the eye of the beholder…… Burton in roles without Liz, often a standout, but always seemed like a shaksperion., Liz without Burton often a standout but always typedherself a bit slutty. Best film together, Cleopatera. Maybe because of my love of history and pagentry. Earlier versionswere not too accurate. Hollywood gets too elaborate with costumes etc. I guess to ownup, either one just weren’t my cup of tea.

    When are you or the movie company going to release HAMMERSMITH IS OUT? It’s not one of TAYLOR/BURTON’s best movie, but it’s a pretty good one.

    Last night (2/6/2014) I watched, for the very first time, “…Virginia Woolf” on TCM. I was thoroughly “spent” by the time it was over. As a fan of this famous couple, I sincerely appreciate their brilliant performance and the exhausting physical effort they put into this classic film. I so miss the both of them!
