Liz & Dick

Synopsis: On the set of Cleopatra, Hollywood's most beautiful star, Elizabeth Taylor, fell into the arms of one of the world's greatest actors, Richard Burton - and she didn't leave. Their subsequent white-hot, scandalous love affair gave rise to the paparazzi and they became the most hunted and photographed couple on earth. Their rocky, passionate, relationship, born in front of the cameras, was subsequently captured in a series of films, including The V.I.P.s and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The last of the great, extravagant stars, flaunting diamonds, yachts and private planes, they continually seized the headlines. They even divorced and married again - only to divorce again - but remain in each other's hearts. This Elizabeth Taylor - Richard Burton story is a no-holds barred account of their undying, but impossible love.

THE LOSING DICE WERE TOSSED

MY BRIDGES ALL WERE CROSSED

NOWHERE TO GO:

NOW I KNOW:

JUST WHERE I'M GOING

NO MORE DOUBT OR FEAR

I FOUND MY WAY:

FOR LOVE CAME JUST IN TIME

YOU FOUND ME JUST IN TIME

AND CHANGED MY LONELY LIFE

THAT LUCKY DAY:

NOW YOU'RE HERE

NOW I KNOW:

JUST WHERE I'M GOING

NO MORE DOUBT OR FEAR

I FOUND MY WAY:

FOR LOVE CAME JUST IN TIME

YOU FOUND ME JUST IN TIME

AND CHANGED MY LONELY LIFE

THAT LUCKY DAY:

"I FELL FOR YOU

HE WRITES SO BEAUTIFULLY,

HE COULD'VE BEEN A WRITER.

SHOULD'VE BEEN.

I WROTE EVERY DAY

FOR -- WHAT -- 20 YEARS.

EVEN WROTE TODAY.

THANK YOU.

WE WERE DESTINED

TO MEET.

"CLEOPATRA."

MOST PEOPLE DON'T REMEMBER,

BUT WE STARTED:

SHOOTING THE FILM IN ENGLAND

WITHOUT DEAR RICHARD.

AND THEN:

FILMING SUDDENLY STOPPED

BECAUSE ELIZABETH

FELL TERRIBLY ILL.

YES, I HAD TO HAVE

A TRACHEOTOMY.

HAD TO BUY A 69-CARAT DIAMOND

TO COVER THAT SCAR.

[ CHUCKLES ]

OF COURSE, I'D SEEN HER BEFORE,

AT A PARTY IN HOLLYWOOD.

YES, APPARENTLY,

I WAS VERY COOL.

SUDDENLY, I GOT A PHONE CALL --

"FLY TO ROME."

I WAS TERRIFIED.

EXCUSE ME.

WHERE IS EVERYONE?

AM I:

ON THE WRONG STAGE?

[ INDISTINCT TALKING ]

[ TALKING CONTINUES ]

Joe:
AH.

WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN.

OH, YES -- LIKEWISE.

HAS ANYONE EVER TOLD YOU

Elizabeth:

I THINK SHE THOUGHT ME, UH,

UH, I WAS THOROUGHLY CONFUSED

BY ELIZABETH:

WHEN I FIRST MET HER.

SHE, UH, WAS A CREATURE
