CGiii Comment

Noel Coward as the Witch of Capri (Heavens above!), Losey, Burton, Taylor & Williams...is this the place where and the point when...all of their respectable careers started to fall apart?

Or, did they do this for a laugh?!?

As camp as camp can be, deliberate? Perhaps - but, it's not even good camp - whatever that is...

It is - definitely - a bizarre mess - hysterically bad.

A must see....as how not to make a film with HUGE stars.

How mighty...but, they do fall.
