Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were a perfect match for Shakespeare's feuding
Kate and Petruchio in Franco Zeffirelli's 1967 production of "The Taming of the Shrew."

The 1967 film, directed by John Huston and based on a Carson McCullers novel,
dealt with repressed homosexuality.

Taylor appeared as the alluring apparition who helps tempt Richard Burton
as "Doctor Faustus" (1967). Burton co-directed this adaptation of an Oxford
University production of the 16th century Christopher Marlowe classic.

Taylor received her fifth Academy Award nomination for Best Actress (and her second Oscar)
for her searing performance in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" (1966), based on Edward
Albee's play of a warring couple. It was director Mike Nichols' first feature film, which
broke Hollywood taboos on language and provided Taylor and Burton with their most
electrifying screen pairing.

Taylor appeared with Burton in "Boom" (1968), Tennessee Williams' own screen
adatation of his play, "The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore." The allegory,
set on a secluded island, featured Burton as a figurative Angel of Death, and Noel
Coward as "the Witch of Capri." It was not received well by critics.

In "X, Y and Zee" (1971), Taylor tries to undo the romantic triangle created when

Suspending disbelief when watching "Ash Wednesday" (1973) means accepting
41-year-old Taylor as a 55-year-old woman who undergoes full-body plastic surgery
in order to win over a philandering husband (played by Henry Fonda). What was
more believable was her affair with young playboy Hemut Berger.

The 1976 Russian-American co-production "The Blue Bird" - one of many filmings of the
Maurice Maeterlinck play - was directed by Hollywod veteran George Cukor, and starred
Taylor alongside a young Patsy Kensit and Todd Lookinland. Also in the cast: Ava
Gardner, Cicely Tyson, Robert Morley and Jane Fonda.
