Flora Sissy Goforth is our mystery chatelaine.
Played to the absolute hilt by Elizabeth Taylor in Tennessee Williams's film adaptation of his play The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore (1963) entitled Boom! (1968). Appearing along side Miss Taylor are Richard Burton, Noel Coward (pictured above in his role as the Witch of Capri), and Joanna Shimkus.
The ravishing sets were created by the very talented Richard MacDonald, who had also previously worked with the film's director Joseph Losey.
While not generally well received in its own time, perhaps Boom!'s time has finally come. Perhaps this time as an opera.
