If the makers of the Liz and Dick TV biopic with Lindsay Lohan and whatsisname as Richard Burton can just make an excuse to include footage of Lohan-as-Taylor walking out of the water in that white, nearly-transparent bathing suit in Suddenly Last Summer…which happened, yes, in ’58 or ’59, or a good two years before Burton came into her life during the filming of Cleopatra…if they just work that scene in somehow, the movie will be halfway home.

If I was a gambler I would bet the farm that they won’t do this. Why? Because many if not most people in this business lack that instinctual nose for what the public wants. In other words, many of the people who make movies should be doing something else.
