Glitzy News from our Sister Industry

RV Business reports the 36 foot trailer that Elizabeth Taylor used for her dressing room during the filming of Cleopatra in 1963 sold at auction recently for $51,660. Twentieth Century Fox was said to have spent $75,000 to lavishly outfit the Aljo trailer with full columns mounted on the walls, hand-painted ceilings and and murals on the bedroom walls to help “keep Elizabeth Taylor in the true character of Cleopatra.” $75,000 in today’s dollars would be the equivalent of $560,000. After filming, the trailer was on the ranch of one of the movie’s backers, then was in a museum, and most recently served as a guest house at a private residence.
