Summary This captivating drama tells the nostalgic, bitter-sweet story of Hollywood's most glamorous couple as they acted together for the last time in Noel Coward's play, Private Lives, in 1983.When Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton met on the set of Cleopatra, the attraction was immediate. The public couldn't get enough of their illicit romance, and then their two tempestuous marriages and extravagant reunions.Years later, during the Private Lives tour, public speculation grew about the possibility of another marriage, but in private, old frictions played out once again. Beyond the alcohol, pills and the trappings of fame, was a love that never died.
