Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton


In the roles of Mark Antony and Cleopatra, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor met on the set of Cleopatra at Cinecittà Studios. The production had been moved from Pinewood in England. In an early love letter to Ms. Taylor, Mr. Burton wrote ""I lust after your smell...and your round belly and the exquisite softness of the inside of your thighs and your baby-bottom and your giving lips and the half-hostile look in your eyes when you're deep in rut with your little Welsh stallion."
