I"m guessing that Twentieth Century-Fox has forgiven Elizabeth Taylor for "Cleopatra."
At the time, there was talk that this was the movie that would bankrupt the studio. As Taylor kept calling in sick, the cost soared; the resulting film was large and lush and, alas, merely OK.
It eventually broke even, however. And now, as its tribute to Taylor -- who died Wednesday of congestive heart failure, at 79 -- the Fox Movie Channel is airing the movie all day Sunday.
