Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton Made Twelve Movies Together
Elizabeth Taylor passed away recently on March 23, 2011 and her two-time husband and movie co-star Richard Burton passed away on August 5, 1984. They left behind a legend in real life and on the big screen. Some called them the Cleopatra and Anthony of the 1960s. They may be gone now but they will live on forever on DVD.
This page is dedicated to the movies that Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton made together. I have managed to find twelve Taylor-Burton films, including one television program and excluding their Broadway show, Private Lives.
Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton made a total of 12 films together.
The Sandpiper (1965)
The Sandpiper is a 1965 movie which, in addition to Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, also stars Eva Marie Saint and Charles Bronson and is directed by Vincent Minnelli. The story is of an illicit love between a single mother and a married minister in a small town. The Episcopalian priest is at first put off by her ways but eventually falls for her.
The V.I.P.s (1963)
The V.I.P.s is a 1963 movie starring Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Orson Welles, Louis Jourdan and Rod Taylor. It tells the story of a group of people waiting for a flight from London to the United States…for whom takeoff cannot occur soon enough. As you might guess, fog arrives and the flight is unable to takeoff. The night seems the passengers facing their problems. Amazon says, this is a "romantic melodrama mixed with wry comic flourishes." Margaret Rutherfor won an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a National Board of Review for her performance as a dotty dutchess.
The Comedians (1967)
Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Alec Guinness and Peter Ustinov
The Comedians is a 1967 film based on a novel by Graham Greene who also created the screenplay. It is set in Haiti and tells the story of a white hotel owner and his fatalism as he watches Haiti sink into barbarism. Despite having a great cast, plenty of international intrigue and good widescreen photography, this film was not extremely well received at the time of its release.
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf (1966)
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf starred Elizabeth Taylor as a drunken, frustrated wife to Richard Burton, who played a university academic. This film showcases Taylor's talent more than her beauty as it portrays her as a desparate, middle-aged woman and Burton's role saw him as a hen-pecked husband.Nominated for thirteen Academy Awards, one in EVERY CATEGORY, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf went on to win five of them including Taylor's for Best Actress.
Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton Film Collection
Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton Film Collection includes four movies: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf 2-Disc Special Edition, The Comedians, The Sandpiper and The V.I.P
The Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton Film Collection includes five discs with four movies -- the four movies discussed above -- Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf 2-Disc Special Edition, The Comedians, The Sandpiper and The V.I.P.s.
Sometimes boxed sets represent tremendous values; other times, they are not so great, at least price wise. Tonight, however, I have added the individual price of these DVDs up and, if you were to buy them all separately NEW, they would cost $94, making the Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton Film Collection an amazing deal since it is priced at about half that price. If you want to own a couple of these movies, it is well worth buying them as part of this set.
You will find that Amazon has one of the most impressive Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton movie selections available. I find that Amazon's price is almost always discounted from the suggested retail price plus I like the fact that they always include FREE shipping on purchases worth $25 or more.
