That movie was pretty interesting to say the least.
This reminds me of "Blind Terror" (See no Evil) 1971.

Ship of Fools (1965) and Gigot (1969). I'd be surprised if anyone here has seen either of these.

Ship of Fools is one of my favorite movies. I became obsessed with Oskar Werner because of that movie. The entire cast is amazing. There is not a bad performance in that movie.

I'm so thankful for the comic relief of Lee Marvin's character. It's a deep, thinking-man's movie. This is one case where the movie was actually better than the book.

I've got that movie and when I want to recall what young love is like I watch it. Another one of that genre is "Parish.'

"Suddenly Last Summer" is another good one. Liz Taylor, Montgomery Clift (did you know he was Eleanor Clift's bro-in-law?), Katherine Hepburn. Good story and great cast.

I have seen "Suddenly Last Summer" around the same time I've watched "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof."
Another good one with Liz Taylor is "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" though, I don't think it qualifies, since it won 5 Oscars (hardly obscure).

I have a collection of Taylor/Burton movies that I got in a set. I remember seeing the movies when they came out but didn't care for them at the time. I rewatched them when I got the set and was surprised at how good some of them were.

The VIP's
The Commedians
The Sandpiper

They did make some lemons together but I really liked the three above.

"Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" just about killed me. I'm being a bit dramatic but that movie just tore me up. It is a classic with 4 wonderful performances but the rabid character made me so nervous. I think it is a very hard movie to watch.

An older pretty obscure film I'm fond of is 'Man of la Mancha' with Peter O'Toole and
Sophia Loren. Peter can sometime chew the scenary in some of his films, but in this
one he is very good. Their are some good tunes like 'To dream the impossible dream'
which is a nice song. Plus plenty of eye candy with Sophia!

As great as everyone was in that movie, Elizabeth Taylor was unforgettable. Can be hard to watch, depending on what kind of mood you're in, but one of my all time favorites.

Saw one a few weeks ago that I'd only caught glimpses of prior.. "52 Pick Up" with Roy Scheider and Ann Margaret.. worth checking out.

One of my timeless classics, besides...I love the song as much as I love the Poem "If"!
"Camelot" with Richard Harris and Vanessa Redgrave for those who enjoy movie musicals.
