Not so beau.....
Brummel really died in France (in Caen) but not of TB.He actually developed a VD!TB was certainly more romantic .

As we are told in " the man who shot Liberty Valance" ,when history is less beautiful than the legend,let's print the legend.

The cast is very good: Stewart Granger portrays a committed dandy -we are not told he used to spend five hours a day to dress himself- who is a friend of the prince of Wales but who is influenced by the New World and the French Revolution.He looks like a cross between Lafayette (who refused to be at the beck and call of Louis 16th even before the Revolution) and Beaumarchais' s "Figaro ("what did you do to deserve so many goods?You were born (a noble) and that's it").Granger displays panache,dignity and loyalty;Peter Ustinov,gives a performance which reminds me of his effeminate Nero in "Quo Vadis" ;Robert Morley briefly appears as the lunatic king but he makes his scenes count;Elizabeth Taylor's part of a lady who cannot make up her mind- adventure or security- is not one of the actress's best though ;it was her heyday and "Brummel" does not compare favorably to "suddenly last Summer" "giant" or even "the raintree county" or "Ivanhoe".
