Movie Info

In this widely-reviled version of Tennessee Williams' stage play The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore, with an absurdist screenplay by Williams and tone-deaf direction by Joseph Losey, Elizabeth Taylor is Flora Goforth, a six-times divorced millionairess who is spending her summer holidays on a Mediterranean island to dictate her memoirs and to die. Arriving on the island is besotted poet Chris Flanders (Richard Burton), dubbed the "Angel of Death" by Flora's swishy Noel Coward-esque friend (Noel Coward) because of Chris's uncanny ability to hone in on rich, dying widows and reap financial boons from the terminally ill dowagers. Flora, nevertheless, ignores her friend's prescient wisdom and permits Chris to stay at her villa. As her health continues to fade, she becomes more and more attracted to "the Angel of Death."
