For a family that looks like “The Munsters” it takes a lot of nerve calling Elizabeth Taylor a Fat Pig, in Cleopatra!


November 21, 1964, Saturday.

Went to work at Jack’s Ranch Market until 2;00, then went and bought a skirt and blouse to wear, because I was supposed to meet the family to have pictures taken for Granddaddy’s Birthday. On the way up, trying to find the place, I got my first ticket for running a red light!  I didn’t even see the light!!  I was so scared, now I have to go to court December 7th. I was so upset when I arrived and I had to act normal for the pictures, but, Mom and Dad weren’t mad about the ticket. Pearl, Sandy and I went to see “Cleopatra.” It was so long, four hours. Liz Taylor was a fat pig! The movie wasn’t so good. We went home right after

We all laughed about this picture, because we look like “the Munsters” in the TV show.   My dad just got out of the hospital after being very sick, I just got a ticket, Mom was trying to do something nice for her dad for his Birthday and nobody was into it…and  I must say, it was very bad lighting!!

Elizabeth Taylor Seductive Cleopatra

I guess even for 1964 standards, Elizabeth Taylor looked pretty fat and not very toned for her nude scenes in Cleopatra.
