Memorable Quotes and Dialog:

"I was the slut of all times."
  - Gloria Wandrous (ELIZABETH TAYLOR) to her mother (MILDRED DUNNOCK)

Major Awards:

Academy Awards 1960 - Best Actress: Elizabeth Taylor

Description by OLDIES.com:

Gloria Wondrous awakens in a luxurious bedroom that's not hers. She swallows a jolt of distilled courage, tosses aside $250 left by an admirer, leaves a scornful reply in lipstick on the mirror, dials her service for messages and slips into a mink coat she finds in the closet. The day and the movie are off to a roaring start.

Moviegoers and Hollywood left a message of "Hurrah!" for Elizabeth Taylor and Butterfield 8. Audiences made the film, co-starring Laurence Harvey and Eddie Fisher as a married lover and platonic friend who matter to Gloria, a box-office hit. And Taylor won her first Best Actress Academy Award as the call girl whose life comes with a complete set of emotional baggage. For a glossy, good time, don't call. Watch.

Product Description:

Taylor's an eyeful as a sophisticated call girl wanting to go straight. The screen adaptation of O'Hara's novel grafts on a stock Hollywood ending, but the film is all Taylors's tour de force anyway.
