    I love the cast of Brokeback Mountain. Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal,
    Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway were all marvelous. Yet, if this
    movie had been made in the 1950s, i could also find the perfect cast for
    it: James Dean in Heath Ledger’s role, Montgomery Clift in Jake
    Gyllenhaal’s role, Shelley Winters in Michelle WIlliams’ role and
    Elizabeth Taylor in Anne Hathaway’s.

    That would have been quite a progressive thing, making a film like this in the fifties. Overall, apparently there was no such thing as homosexuality, and the big “oooo” then was in looking at heterosexual, extramartial affairs.

    But were I to cast it, I’d go with Rock Hudson, Natalie Wood, Robert Wagner, and like you, Elizabeth Taylor, as Heath, Michelle, Jake, and Anne.
