This week and next week I have majorly important exams.
I’ll try my absolute best to post something tomorrow and in the weekend.
But apart from that, I’m afraid I don’t have much time.
If you love Elizabeth Taylor as much as I do and if you share an obsession or interest in the 1963 movie “Cleopatra” (directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz) then you might want to take a look at this site: http://elizabethtaylorthelegend.com/
Almost everything documented about Elizabeth Taylor is featured there (articles, photos, etc.). The thing that I find most impressive is this:
If you go to that link, you can find pretty much anything that has to do with the 1963 Cleopatra movie. This includes exclusive pictures of EVERY costume Elizabeth Taylor wore in that movie (even the unseen ones, which adds up to about 50 movie costumes!) and the original sketches for the costumes.
Most interestingly, the site features a restored version of the script and loads of unseen behind-the-scenes pictures. The original movie was over six hours long, but two hours of scenes where cut out. Everything that is missing, is documented there.
It’s very impressive, and I recommend you take a look if you are interested!
