More ways to waste time



Ash Wednesday (1973), featuring Elizabeth Taylor, Henry Fonda, Helmut Berger, Keith Baxter, and Maurice Teynac. Directed by Larry Peerce.

Can Barbara Sawyer (Elizabeth Taylor), a woman too old to be young and too young to be old, rekindle her husband Mark's (Henry Fonda) waning desire by submitting herself to the rigours of the plastic surgeon's knife?

Sadly, only available on VHS but well worth the effort.


Before.


And after - both are the work of makeup artist Alberto De Rossi .
