The V.I.P.s

The V.I.P.s

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton lead a stellar cast in this drama of the intersecting needs and desires of a small band of wealthy, powerful and petulant people--The V.I.P.s. When a London fog grounds all flights, a group of strangers hoping to leave in a hurry must spend one more night in England: beautiful, petulant Frances Andros (Academy Award winner Taylor) is leaving her husband, Paul (Burton), with her lover (Louis Jordan); brilliant filmmaker Max Buda (Academy Award winner Orson Welles) is fleeing with his newest protégé (Elsa Martinelli) to avoid paying his taxes; and Australian tycoon Les Mangam (Rod Taylor) is in a hurry to return to New York with his adoring secretary, Miss Mead (Academy Award winner Maggie Smith), to head off a hostile takeover.
