Beautiful Elizabeth Taylor in historical film Beau Brummell (1954)

George Bryan “Beau” Brummell (1778 – 1840) was an iconic figure in Regency England, the arbiter of men’s fashion, and a friend of the Prince Regent, the future King George IV.

Beau Brummell is a 1954 American-British historical film released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. According to MGM records the film earned $1,049,000 in the US and $1,652,000 elsewhere. It made a loss of $383,000.

However, in recent years the film has attained a considerable cult status and popularity, largely because of the story of British high society in the colorful Napoleonic and Regency Eras and because of memorable performances by Granger, Taylor, Ustinov and Morley as “Mad King George III”.
