Mia Farrow and Elizabeth Taylor in "Secret Ceremony"

The Dark Side of Sanity! kicks off at Trailers from Hell, with screenwriter Larry Karazsewski introducing "Secret Ceremony," which he calls "nobody's favorite Joseph Losey film," starring Elizabeth Taylor, Robert Mitchum and Mia Farrow. Losey is bettter known for deftly angst-ridden titles like 1951 noir "The Prowler" and 1963's "The Servant."

This strange, dreamlike melodrama found little audience reception and is more famous today for the hatchet job Universal did on it to broadcast it on network tv. Elizabeth Taylor, playing a prostitute in the original, became a woman “who tried on wigs for a living”!
