BUtterfield 8

N.p. Afton-Linebrook, 1960. Vintage studio still photograph from the 1960 film.

What "Valley of the Dolls" is to drugs, "BUtterfield 8" is to sex. Extremely watchable trash, a big-budget film with lowdown agenda, and the last film in which Elizabeth Taylor, who won an Oscar for her performance, could have been accurately described as young and radiant, bravely taking on an unsympathetic role as a high-end call girl who is beginning to run into problems. Something of an American answer to De Sica's "Madame De..." with the object in question being a fur coat rather than a pair of earrings.

Shot on location in New York.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, with extensive annotations to the verso in red felt-tipped ink, blue ink, and holograph graphite.
