Watch the movie for the gorgeous coastal scenery. This movie feels dated and the messaging a bit heavy-handed, and there are far better Taylor-Burton pairings (how about "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?").

Its hard to judge this film knowing the history and past of Burton and Taylor. The conditionin which Laura (Elizabeth) is presented is common today, along with a spiraling disregardfor religion. The film's title is close to being a misnomer, but not wholly. Its more of a tool -mechanism that pulled two entities on differing paths together. The Big Sur location and a healthy name cast make this an interesting movie for some. Sometimes films don't fit intoeveryone's personality, but no reason to disregard the body of work. Perhaps understandingcan only be known if one has experienced a relationship of this magnitude, if not, you'll not fully understand. The beach scene right after the little bird comes outside, is about as real as it gets. Very appropriate to be aired on Valentine's Day this year, its a love story on the human level.
I loved watching this movie...not so much for the great acting...but the great music, scenery, and history.It;s a real timepiece and I didn't find it boring at all.

The worst movie I've watched from beginning to end.(And this comes from someone who also sat through "Paint Your Wagon.")
Spirit of Big Sur
- Noir Horse
I love love love this movie. The music, styling and locations combine with the amazing cast to weave a story that touches the soul. For me personally, it always fills me with a mysterious sense of deja vu, for a place in time that I'd yet to be born. I also think it ridicous to suggest that an artist cannot be beautiful or glamorous. Liz is perfection! The locations are wonderful supporting characters. Thanks for placing it in your schedule.
Um filme fantstico e excelente. Ver Elizabeth e Richard Burton juntos s poderia resultar num dos melhores filmes de amor dos anos 60. A trilha sonora do filme linda. Perfeito o filme
Big Sur In Redux
- Elder Guru
Liz 's and Dick"s tour de force vehicle and John Mandel'smasterpiece score. What more can one say, loved it!
Sandpiper Is a Glorious FIlm
Please put this film back in your schedule. It's wonderful to watch, a perfect snapshot of that moment in time. I ADORE the locations. I disagree with the previous poster regarding Liz's glamor factor . Since when is it rule that an artist be unglamorous or unfashionable? Liz definitely captures the bohemian spirit of the artist she portrays- and does so beautifully.Can't wait to see this one again.
Close ups galore
The Liz Taylor close ups were incredible. It was shot in the summer of 64, the year they were finally married!Great sets locations and quite a scene when Bronson is sculpting Liz.Of course dont forget the Oscar winning very famous song, The Shadow of Your Smile.
Liz is far, far too much of a glam gal to convince the audience that she's an artist. I really like that embroidered white caftan she wears in one scene with Burton. It's a film I love to hate.
Love The Sandpiper!
This film is absolutely stunning! From the Big Sur coast location to the stellar performances of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. It speaks to the free spirit in each of us and to our self-imposed limitations. I would add this film to my collection in a heart-beat if it was made available.
