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.

Film version of playwright Tennessee Williams' "The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore" involves very wealthy Flora 'Sissy' Goforth, supposedly dying, and living in a large mansion on a secluded island with her servants and nurses; into her life comes a mysterious man, Angelo Del Morte and "the Witch of Capri." The mysterious man may or may not be "The Angel of Death".
