“We had an extraordinary friendship. We would sometimes sit up until three in the morning, and he would tell me about his past, his mother, minister, his loves, and the next day he would just look straight through me as if he’d given away or revealed too much of himself. It would take, after one of these sessions, maybe a couple of days before we’d be back on friendship terms. He was very afraid to give of himself.”
Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor in A Place in the Sun, 1951.
“She was so extraordinarily beautiful that I nearly laughed out loud.”
Elizabeth Taylor on the set of Love is Better Than Ever (1952)
