35mm presentation - One of John Waters' favorite films that he didn't direct is this hard to find over-the-top camp fest that was written by Tennessee Williams and stars Elizabeth Taylor at her most glamorous. The wealthy, self-absorbed eccentric Sissy Goforth (Taylor) has taken up residence on a secluded Mediterranean island where she dictates her memoirs, flies into rages and screams insults at her servants. Her health now failing, she drinks, takes pills and has a doctor give her injections to ease the pain. Into her reclusive life comes a stranger (Richard Burton) who manages to climb to her villa and survive a guard dog attack before introducing himself as a poet. Though attracted by the visitor she soon discovers he has a reputation for appearing when wealthy women are about to meet their demise and is known locally as the Angel of Death.
