The groom appeared and, minutes later, the star of the show arrived wearing a yellow dress anklelength, a gift of designer Valentino. Michael Jackson was on her right, wearing a slash of bright red lipstick and eyeliner Cleopatra.
Elizabeth’s eldest son Michael was on her left. Bubbles, Michael Jackson’s favorite chimpanzee, were perched a few feet, munching popcorn. Then the scene changed from flashy to the guerrillas.

“She was so weak from lack of food she could not lift an empty box out of bed in the first scene, she played,” said producer Lawrence Weingarten. “But it was remarkable. You can not see a flaw in her performance.”
