This biography says nothing about Elizabeth Taylor's experience of working with George Sanders and Robert Taylor in 'Ivanhoe'. It also says nothing about her experience of working with Honor Blackman and Robert Taylor in 'Conspirator'. It is well documented that she was bored working on 'Beau Brummell', but it says nothing about her experience of working with Stewart Granger.
It does, however, speak about her experience of meeting Richard Burton for the first time in 1953 at a pool party held by Stewart Granger and Jean Simmons. She was unimpressed by him, and he tried to compensate by saying that people who swear are mentally bankrupt. Even with his Oxford education and small successes on screen, Burton was still insecure in the presence of Hollywood elite.
It also speaks about how James Dean would pass Elizabeth Taylor on the set of 'Giant' and ignore her.
