Rating: 0.5/4 -- Take a snapshot of Taylor next to her wooden likeness and you'd need a caption to distinguish between the two. Full Review

Rating: D -- A star vehicle for Liz Taylor and Richard Burton, The Sandpiper is one of Minnelli's most embarrassing films, which is poorly scripted (by Dalton Trumbo), helmed, and acted and doesn't even qualify as high camp. Full Review

Trite and often ponderous in its philosophizing by the two principals. Full Review

Description by

Laura Reynolds (Elizabeth Taylor) is a free spirit, living in rustic bohemian splendor in an oceanfront Big Sur home. Minister Edward Hewitt (Richard Burton), a school headmaster, lives a life as constrained as his clerical collar. Now his world is changing. Blessed with a devoted wife (Eva Marie Saint), he must come to terms with his love for another woman.
