Liz Taylor slums it up in Italy with an emaciated Andy Warhol in this bizarre European film.

The Driver's Seat AKA Identikit is an Italian film that starred Elizabeth Taylor as a mentally disturbed woman who slums around Europe, dresses in gaudy euro trash clothes, applies a paint bucket of mascara, has a lot of psychotic spells, meets an even weirder Englishman and meets an emaciated Andy Warhol (who looks like he could die at any time with an undertaker hanging around taking his measurements). I saw this movie many years ago on video and it left me scratching my head. Since this was an Italian film maybe something was lost in the translation but Elizabeth Taylor puts on a display of top notch overacting.

The only copies of this movie that are available today on DVD are crappy transfers with audio that sounds as if it was recorded from a drive-inn speaker. If you're a gutsy individual who wants to take his chance on trying to experience this (gladly) forgotten slice of Liz Taylor's film career then by all means track down a copy of The Driver's Seat and witness first hand some true hammy acting, Euro-seventies fashion, horrible English dubbing and film editing that looks like it was cut with safety scissors.

I had no idea that Liz and Andy ever collaborated, but by the sounds of your review, it sounds like it's better kept under wraps :P
