Be Careful What You WIsh For....

Join us at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12 when femme fatale Elizabeth Taylor joins Richard Burton in this month's Literary Flick, Doctor Faustus

This 1967 film was adapted from Christopher Marlowe's 1588 novel The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus.   Richard Burton co-directs the film with Nevill Coghill, and also stars as Faust, a medieval scholar who sells his soul to Mephistopheles (Andreas Teuber) in exchange for mastering all human knowledge. The Devil tempts Faust at every turn by confronting him with the seven deadly sins and Helen of Troy (Elizabeth Taylor). Taylor floats through the film like a beautiful siren luring Faustus to his final doom.
