Taylor dug deep for a powerful portrayal opposite another film titan: Katharine Hepburn. Both were Oscar-nominated, with Taylor winning a Golden Globe Award, for the screen version of Tennessee Williams’ play adapted by Gore Vidal. Hepburn plays a Southern matriarch whose son died on holiday in Spain; niece Taylor was with him, and her traumatized mental state renders her vulnerable to a tug-of-war between Hepburn and neurosurgeon Montgomery Clift.

A film by Joseph L. Mankiewicz
