Mr. Marks thinks that "the raging romance between [Elizabeth] Taylor and [Richard] Burton is best left for some stargazing television hack to direct, not Marty [Scorsese]." Also that Natalie Portman "has far too much talent and not enough feminine pulchritude to play Liz." How about Mad Men's Christina Hendricks?

Hendricks isn't exactly an ingenue, but contra Mr. Marks, I think a dynamite picture could be made about Taylor and Burton around the time they did Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Hendricks certainly has the look. Does she have the acting chops?

Actually, my mother would be proud. Ma HATED Taylor for what she did to that nice Jewish Eddie Fisher.

Somewhere in heaven Babe Marks is smiling. You should have heard what Ma had to say about Debbie Reynolds. I can't repeat it in polite company.

Thanks for the "peniledog." You made my day!

Her Oscar®-winning performance in B8 is dreadful, but if you really want to suffer...
