    Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton Proofs by Irv Steinberg, 1964. A lot of 54 b&w 3.5" x 3.5" candid shots taken by celebrity photographer Irv Steinberg of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in New York City during the spring and summer of 1964 -- and at the zenith of their public idolatry. Shots show Taylor and Burton arriving at Grand Central Station (April 5), the opening night party for Burton's Broadway Hamlet (April 9), Taylor at "Davis at the Copa" (April 30), another Hamlet party (May 17), Taylor and Montgomery Clift attending a Broadway opening (June 21, 1964); and Taylor and Burton being interviewed by Steve Allen at the opening of Night of the Iguana (June 30, 1964). Such celebrities as Tammy Grimes, Roddy McDowall, Polly Bergen and Kevin McCarthy in evidence; the photos have Steinberg's credit stamp and penciled notations of the events and dates on the reverse. Excellent condition.
