Liz with a Riding Crop

Having never seen Reflections in a Golden Eye I have no idea why Elizabeth Taylor slashed Marlon Brando in the face with a riding crop.

Elizabeth Taylor Dominatrix

The movie poster painting is by James Bama a much admired and widely collected painter of Western Americana. Bama is best known to many people for his covers to Bantam Books reprints of the Doc Savage pulps.

  • It’s a magnificent movie, one masterpiece of John Houston’s. Yes, she does whips her, very briefly, when they’re having one of their many husband-and-wife rows.
    There’s also one scene in which she’s just finished her horse ride and has a soldier (soon to be her lover) to take off her boots. At least I seem to remember that scene.

    The film is the cinematic equivalent of a midi-dress: long and not very interesting to see.

  • Was just talking about James Bama today at the flea market, discussing his paperback covers, specifically the one he did of a young couple in bed in “My Turn to Curtsy, Your Turn to Bow.” Terrific artist.

    I saw Reflections in high school; strange movie. I wonder what I would make of it now…

    This poster is pretty wild, though!
