Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) Directed by Mike Nichols. Elizabeth Taylor as Martha and Richard Burton as George

Martha: Fix me another drink, lover.
George: My God, you can swill it down, can’t you?
Martha (in baby voice): Well, I’m thirsty.
George: Oh, Jesus.
Martha (angry): Look, sweetheart. I can drink you under any goddamn table you want, so don’t worry about me.
George: I gave you the prize years ago, Martha. There isn’t an abomination award going that you haven’t won.
Martha: I swear if you existed, I’d divorce you.

  1. Two titanic performances in a towering drama!

  2. How much do you suppose they brought from their own stormy relationship?

  3. Quite a bit I’d say! Ha! Great point.

  4. I loved watching these two on screen together, no matter what they were in. Even if the movie happened to be the worst crap ever, they were amazing to watch.
