(Leslie (Elizabeth Taylor) and Jett (James Dean) in "Giant", 1956)
The beautiful Elizabeth Taylor is Leslie Benedict, the strong willed wife of Bick (Jordan II). Her more liberated ideas and open mindedness sometimes clash with her husband's more traditional way of "how things have always been". The clothing is very ranch stylish--Leslie wears suede skirts and button up blouses that look comfortable and realistic for working on the dusty ranch.While watching the movie on high definition television, the texture of the costumes as well as the colors created a mood for each scene.

Still, for a fun retro movie night, Giant is a visually appealing, fun choice.
