‘Burton & Taylor’ Screencaps

Having admired Helena’s beautiful features for the past five hours, I am please to say that I have just uploaded 2,011 screencaps of Helena as Elizabeth Taylor in Burton and Taylor. I am now in the processing of sorting through Sweeney Todd and Enid caps, so hopefully they’ll be up at the weekend. You can keep voting for which films you want to see capped next in our poll.

‘Behind the Mask’ Exhibition

British photographer, Andy Gotts, MBE will join forces with BAFTA to put on a special exhibition Behind the Mask  at Somerset House, London from 20th January to 7th February.
