Is This the Greatest Photo Ever Taken of Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor?

Oct 16, 2014

When you think of Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor, you think Hollywood royalty. You think cool heartthrob and glamorous seductress. You think, oh yeah, that's the Godfather, baby! Or, man, it's been a while since I watched her sizzle in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Many of the images we see of the iconic duo show off their most famous roles or looks or controversial romances, but rarely do we see one like the image below--a photo that reveals the dressed-down duo caught in a real relatable moment, as if someone snapped a shot of them during Thanksgiving dinner at someone's parents house. 

She looks very much like the girl next door, and he... well, it's written all over his face, really. The kind of face your crazy uncle would make in almost every family picture that exists of him. We love this image because it humanizes two larger-than-life personalities known way more for the glitz and glamor than the corny funny faces we wish we could've seen more of. 

The duo only starred in one movie together, 1967's Reflections in a Golden Eye, directed by John Huston. It didn't do very well at the box office, nor with critics (Time magazine called it "a gallery of grotesques), but you gotta admit it had one helluva snazzy tagline. Ah, the '60s!
