Elizabeth Taylor won an Academy Award for Best Actress in her role as a high-class call girl who falls in love with a married socialite (Laurence Harvey). Eddie Fisher and Dina Merrill co-star.
"I was the slut of all time!" declares Elizabeth Taylor in the role for which she won her first Academy Award®. Taylor plays Gloria, a model of loose morals who discovers a last chance at love and redemption when she spends a week with Weston Ligget (Laurence Harvey), a man who married into money and hates himself for it. They fall in love, but before they can find happiness they have to overcome their own worst natures. BUtterfield 8 (named after Gloria's answering service) is a big boozy melodrama, full of gorgeous clothes, catty comments, and emotional showdowns--but along the way it plumbs some genuine sadness. No one can be simultaneously overblown and utterly sincere like Elizabeth Taylor; the movie is mired in the morality of the time, but her performance makes Gloria's mixture of grief and anger seem immediate and genuine. --Bret Fetzer

which won her an Oscar. She made a short acceptance speech
in a whisper behind a surgical scar over a tracheotomty site.
Perhaps for her, personal drama overshadowed the professional.
Ms.Taylor is at her best here. She blooms, she bleeds, she fights
for love and life.
