MGM insisted that Taylor fulfil her contractual obligations before making Cleopatra for Fox. The resulting animosity, and Taylor's vilification for her relationship with co-star and fourth husband Eddie Fisher, coloured her view of BUtterfield 8 (her verdict: 'piece of ******', scrawled in lipstick across a screening room mirror - a nod to the famous 'no sale' scene). The Academy disagreed and, after three successive Best Actress nominations, Taylor won for her mesmerising performance as lost soul Gloria Wandrous.
