Vintage Photos Capture Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton on the Set of ‘Cleopatra’

Not only the most expensive film and the most talked about movie at the time, Cleopatra also gave the world ‘Liz and Dick,’ the adulterous affair between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. “It was probably the most chaotic time of my life. That hasn’t changed,” recalls Taylor. “What with le scandale, the Vatican banning me, people making threats on my life, falling madly in love… It was fun and it was dark – ocean of tears, but some good times to.”

Below are 30 photographs capture the pair on the set of Cleopatra in 1962:
