    This was Elizabeth Taylor's last true glamour movie.Released in l974, she was photographed in fabulous costumes, in dazzling close-ups that gave us the Elizabeth Taylor the movie queen at her zenith.After winning her Oscar for "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", Taylor sought roles that concentrated on serious drama where her phenomenal beauty was down-played. This might have pleased some audience members but her true fans longed to see her in all her electrifying beauty and dazzling warmth. We finally get it here in "Ash Wednesday".Dressed in stunning Edith Head creations, with some contributions by Valentino, Taylor stuns as the wife of an executive by having a full-body plastic surgery operation. Henry Fonda plays the cold, bored husband and creates zero flash in the sensuality department. Liz vacations at the posh Cortina locale in Italy where we enjoy lush vistas of the fast set against snowy backdrops. A beautiful film score was created by Maurice Jaffe. Liz then has a brief affair with an equally dazzling beautiful male, Helmut Berger.Never again would audiences see Elizabeth Taylor looking so outrageously gorgeous and beautifully attired and made-up as you'll see her here.Come on TCM. Schedule this soon!

    Taylor looking radiant perhaps for the last time on camera. Great scenary and clothes but essentially the kind of film Lana Turner would have done 10 years earlier.

  • Why is this movie overlooked by TCM?

    Taylor is at her dramatic best in this story of a lonely woman trying to save her marriage. After a surgical makeover she realizes that there is life beyond a husband who no longer loves her. Taylor is well cast and more than effective in the lead role. Clothes and scenery (Switzerland) are glorious. This is a great story of a woman's surviving heartbreak...and discovering a new and better life.

    Elizabeth Taylor is at her best in Ash Wednesday. Her beauty if tops, the Edith Head gowns are fabulous, the story is great, the scenery is breathtaking, and ET actually does a great job of acting! Certainly one of her top films!
