1954 drama Beau Brummell is the lavishly told story of George Bryan Brummel, a commoner born in the era of Napoleon who uses wit, brilliance, and sartorial flair to align himself with the future King George IV. Lush settings in authentic locations and Taylor in Regency costume make this an appealing eyeful. The 1924 silent version starred John Barrymore.
Many of the rich interiors for Beau Brummel were shot in an intact 15th-century mansion, Ockwell Manor, located near Windsor Castle in the English countryside.
