This looks like a publicity still from Boom! They were the poster couple for l'amour fou.

In "The Desert Rats", he only had to get in uniform and pretend things were blowing up.

Tom Sutpen said...

Yeah, but they blowed up real good.

Greg said...

Yeah, I should have just put an "et cetera" after the first two.

There were four great couple of the 20th century: Doug and Mary, The Duke of Windsor and Wally, Liz and Dick, and John and Yoko.

Their lives weren't completely unlike the characters they portrayed in Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe ... They were both full-blown alcoholics during the filming. I can almost see the Vodka rising into Burton's eyeballs in this photo.
