Butterfield 8

( 1 )

Overview

Elizabeth Taylor won her first Best Actress Oscar for her role in this tragic romance, presented here as a two-sided disc. One side features a standard full-frame version while on the flip side there is a widescreen anamorphic (aspect ratio of 2.35:1) version. Overall, the colors are a bit soft (which is a pity since the film was nominated for a Best Cinematography Oscar). Aside from that and a few pock marks, the print looks fine.

Elizabeth Taylor won her first Best Actress Oscar for her role in this tragic romance, presented here as a two-sided disc. One side features a standard full-frame version while on the flip side there is a widescreen anamorphic (aspect ratio of 2.35:1) version. Overall, the colors are a bit soft (which is a pity since the film was nominated for a Best Cinematography Oscar). Aside from that and a few pock marks, the print looks fine. The disc has a "Cast and Crew" listing, which features brief bios and credits for actors Elizabeth Taylor, Laurence Harvey, and Eddie Fisher (there is no info for the "crew"). There is also a theatrical trailer included. In the "Languages" section are the choices for English Dolby Digital 1.0 Mono and French audio and subtitles. While not a notable disc, it is certainly satisfactory.

    ! LIZ YOU DESERVED THE OSCAR !!!

    I 100 % think Elizabeth Taylor deserved the Oscar for BUTTERFIELD 8. I have see Liz on television several times saying she did not like her performance and that she did not think she deserved the Oscar. Ms Taylor I humbly say to you, "you deserved the academy award and your performance was outstanding". You often mention Who is Afraid of Virginia Wolf fondly and I did not like that movie at all. Ms Taylor I beseech of you to speak kindly and fondly about BUTTERFIELD 8 and take your accolades for this outstanding movie as you should with pride.
