Laughable adaptation of the Williams' play "The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore" was a Hollywood star disaster. Flora Goforth (Taylor) is a dying millionairess living in isolated glory on an island near Sardinia. Chris Flanders (Burton) is a wandering poet, nicknamed the "Angel of Death," who shows up and becomes Flora's confidante. Does have pretty scenery.
