Our last dueling divas series saw Bette Davis and Joan Crawford duking it out. Bette won, but it wasn’t a KO…both stars brought their best to the ring. Now for the dazzler in Denver – we’re pitting Marilyn Monroe against Elizabeth Taylor. Each night of this series, audience members will have a chance to vote for their favorite, and on the last night of the series, we’ll reveal the champion’s film, chosen by our audience. Come and back your fighter!

Directed by Joseph Mankiewicz. Starring Elizabeth Taylor, Katharine Hepburn, Montgomery Clift. A tour de force performance from Elizabeth Taylor as the mentally ill niece of a wealthy socialite (Hepburn) whose beauty has faded. A gothic doom pervades every frame of this magnificent and weird film, written for the screen by Tennessee Williams. The final climax of this cutting edge story is as surprising for first time viewers as it is breathtaking for those who’ve seen it before – the ending of this gem never disappoints. 114 minutes. Not rated.
