| Oh Elizabeth
I was not aware when I went to watch this film that it was a remake of the classic Paul Newman Geraldine page one. We know that Elizabeth Taylor was in other Tennessee Williams movies and also with Paul Newman why she decided to make this one I have no idea. Her costars are negligible except for Rip Torn in a repeat performance. I love Elizabeth Taylor she's a very beautiful woman and a very fine actress I'm purposely not using was I can understand empathy for this character because she was also older and out of shape etc. but there's no comparison really and she does not shine through in this at all. When you have as good a movie as the original was sometimes it's just hard to remake and maybe shouldn't even be tried
