Terry O'Neill described the occasion the background to this photograph taken in Beverly Hills, California; 'David was two and a half hours late for his first meeting with Liz, which I had arranged at (the film director) George Cukor's house. He arrived disheveled and out of it. Liz was pretty annoyed and on the verge of leaving, but we managed to persuade her to stay. She was thinking of asking him to appear in The Blue Bird (1976), but she went off the idea after that.'
