    Advertisement for Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in "Private Lives," Signed by Both. The 1983 Broadway stage revival of Noel Coward's Private Lives was the final public pairing of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. They had divorced by this time (and each had married and divorced another spouse); Burton married again shortly before Private Lives closed and died a year later. This New York Times advertisement measures 13" x 28" and is handsomely matted in a black metal 13" x 28" frame. The two stars have signed by their pictures; Taylor flamboyantly in her customary reddish-purple ink, Burton somewhat more modestly in blue ink. Both these autographs are tough to find in authentic form, and the two on one item is very desirable. The signed poster is especially dynamic, as it represents the "finale" of the Taylor-Burton relationship. In Excellent condition.Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
