The Spy Who Came in From the Cold

Review TCM Greatest Classic Films: Legends - Taylor & Burton (4FE)(DVD)

THE V.I.P.s (1963) - Fog rolls in, grounding air traffic. Over the next fateful night, elite passengers awaiting London-to-U.S. fl ights must face problems instead of fleeing them. Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and more deliver romantic melodrama mixed with wry comedic flourishes. THE SANDPIPER (1965) - Rapturous Big Sur is the backdrop as a minister (Burton) is torn between his yearnings for a beautiful free spirit (Taylor) and his love for his wife (Eva Marie Saint). Directed by Vincente Minnelli from a screenplay by Dalton Trumbo and Michael Wilson. WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? (1966) - Taylor and Burton are ideal as malevolent marrieds in first-time film director Mike Nichols' searing film of Edward Albee's groundbreaking play (written for the screen by Ernest Lehman). The movie won a total of five Oscars®* and remains a taboo-toppling landmark. THE COMEDIANS (1967) - Romantic and political passions are set ablaze in Haiti during the brutal rule of Papa Doc Duvalier. Burton and Taylor lead a who's-who cast of stars caught up in the strongman's reign of terror in a story as disturbing and redeeming as mankind's conflicted heart.
