Best and possibly most fabulous car crash ever
In BUtterfield 8, when Elizabeth Taylor's Sunbeam Alpine sprints across the Tappan Zee Bridge, through a roadblock, and off a cliff, it results in a very short, very weird, completely mesmerizing crash. Personally, I think it's better and gayer (i.e. more fabulous) than the one in Mahogany. And you can tell Miss Ross I said so. Bonus: if you loved the vocal effects worked on Taylor's confession in Suddenly Last Summer, you'll probably enjoy these, too.
