Mickey (the bartender) asked Carol do you have any fond memories of the movie HBO Just Between Friends that you did with Elizabeth Taylor?
Carol recalls when Elizabeth and her were doing a scene eating chicken. Elizabeth had stuck a feather in her mouth and while they were talking she pulled it out. Carol cracked up. She said Elizabeth was a hoot.
