Apparently Elizabeth Taylor wasn't too excited about being in "Butterfield 8." She was already seen as a floozy by the public after stealing girl-next-door Debbie Reynold's man, and now she was going to play a loose woman (For a good time call Butterfield 8!). While she wasn't happy about the movie at first, she ended up winning an Oscar for her performance.
I actually read the book and found it pretty terrible. The movie, on the other hand, is pretty great. I'm a sucker for anything where Elizabeth Taylor flashes her violet eyes, has giant hair and gets involved with the wrong men. That's just good cinema.
