Julia Misbehaves is a romantic comedy film by Jack Conway starring Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon as a married couple. The snobby family of the man separated them. They meet again after several years when the daughter he has raised, played by Elizabeth Taylor, invites her mother to her wedding.
This adaptation of Margery Sharp’s 1937 nova The Nutmeg Tree, also at the foundation of the Lady in Waiting on Broadway in 1940, was director Jack Conway’s final film.
During the Julia Misbehaves film, Elizabeth Taylor was 16 years old. She even got her first Peter Lawford onscreen kiss. Taylor was crushed and followed Lawford, but he was warned she was off bounds and told her there wasn’t any possibility of a relationship between them. Taylor stayed for days until Lawford’s visit flattered things, and friends stayed.
These lovely pictures were taken by Elizabeth Taylor, 16 when Julia Misbehaves was filmed in 1948.
