Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
We deviate from our planned pic, which we’ll get to tomorrow, in order to give a little tribute to the recently departed Ms. Elizabeth Taylor.
I have a few pictures of her films in the file, but this one in particular jumped out to me. From the smirk on Spencer Tracy’s face to her genuine smile it’s the kind of photo that makes me wish I was there when it was taken; that I know the context of the moment.
Now, I’m not sure if this is from Father of the Bride or the sequel, Father’s Little Dividend, but either way it’s a great shot.
I’d also like to take this moment to recommend one of my favorite Elizabeth Taylor performances: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolfe? It’s one of the most heart-wrenching hilarious fucked up dramas ever put to screen, featuring an exceptionally honest performance from Ms. Taylor as she feuds with her real life husband Richard Burton. She wasn’t afraid to come across as disheveled, unglamorous at a period in her career where a less secure actress would have shied away from her age. It’s an amazing film and quite a brilliant performance.
Tonight my thoughts will be with Ms. Taylors friends, family and fans.
Tomorrow the Behind the Scenes Pic returns to our regularly scheduled program. Tomorrow we return to ‘Nam!
