Elizabeth Taylor’s custom made trailer from the ‘Cleopatra’ was allegedly trashed during the filming of Lifetime’s ‘Liz & Dick’ the new owner of the trailer said. The trailer was made for $75,000 in 1963 by Fox Studio for Taylor to relax in between movie ‘Cleopatra’ filming breaks. The trailer was recently sold to Angel Alger for $50,000 in June and then she handed it to Silver Screen Pictures for the ‘Liz & Dick’ filming. When it was returned in July she claims it was trashed…the damages amounting to $100,000 and she blames Lindsay Lohan, although there is no proof of that.
“I was specifically told that it would come back in pristine condition and in even better condition than it was at that time,” Alger said.
Photos show cigarette burns on fabric, furniture and even a portrait of Taylor. Dishes, mirror and glass were broken.
What’s worse is what’s missing, Alger said.
An exquisite antique European rocking chair that Taylor sat in after filming every night was taken.
“I did not get to enjoy using the lavish French phone that she used or even her personal hair brush that probably still had some of her hair in it,” she said.
Alger blames Lindsay Lohan, “Only a psychotic and rebellious person or people would steal irreplaceable museum belongings and leave it in this vandalized condition.” But there is no evidence to prove that. Lohan’s rep denies that, “This has nothing to do with Lindsay,” Steve Honig said. “You should ask the producers about it.”
Alger added, “I want these things back because, truly, there is not enough money to replace these one-of-a-kind items,” Alger said. “These have been taken from me and my family who would inherit them. Maybe they are still in the studio somewhere? I was told they would be looking for them.”
