BEAU BRUMMEL MOVIE CAST: ELIZABETH TAYLOR, PETER USTINOV Signed movie still from the 1954 costume drama Beau Brummel, with Taylor and Ustinov kitted out in full diplomatic dress Photograph signed "[illegible]/Peter Ustinov" and "Elizabeth/Taylor", both in blue ink. With pencil notations in unknown hand on verso. B/w, 10x7¾ overall, 9¼x7 image, one surface. Stamped in purple ink on verso: "Beau Brummell/MGM". Ustinov and Taylor starred in Beau Brummel, a 1954 costume drama about the rags-to-riches-to-rags-again story of Capt. George Brummel. Ustinov was the Prince of Wales, whom Brummel insults one too many times, and Taylor was Patricia Belham, the noblewoman that Brummel loses in the denouement. Already a striking beauty by age ten, violet-eyed child star TAYLOR (1932-2011), born in Hampstead, London, England, who made her film debut in 1942, grew up to play sizzling adult roles on screen. Married to Nick Hilton, Michael Wilding, Mike Todd, Eddie Fisher, Richard Burton (twice), John Warner and Larry Fortensky, Taylor won Academy Awards for Best Actress for Butterfield 8 (1960) and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966). The first actress to earn $1 million for a motion picture (Cleopatra, 1963), Taylor was also nominated for Best Actress Oscars in 1957 (Raintree County), 1958 (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) and 1959 (Suddenly, Last Summer). Named a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II on December 31, 1999, Taylor was also a John F. Kennedy Center Honoree in 2002. Despite debilitating health problems, she is also known for her tireless efforts to raise funds for AIDS charities. This loan was obtained at a difficult time in Taylor's life. Although she had been Tony-nominated for her part in The Little Foxes in 1981 and would soon co-star with former husband Richard Burton in a stage revival of Private Lives, she divorced husband and U. S. Senator John Warner in November of 1982. In 1983, she checked herself into the Betty Ford clinic to combat alcohol and painkiller addiction. USTINOV (1921-2004, born Peter Alexander Freiherr von Ustinov in London, England) won three Emmy Awards: for the Best Single Performance by an Actor (lead or support), in The Life of Samuel Johnson (Omnibus episode, 1957), for Outstanding Single Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Drama in Barefoot in Athens (1966) and for Outstanding Single Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in A Storm in Summer (1970). Sir Peter Ustinov, winner of two Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor (1961, Spartacus; 1964, Topkapi), was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1990. Lightly toned and bowed. Light creases and impression on image (not visible head-on). Otherwise in fine condition. Previously authenticated by PSA/DNA.
