The Mirror Crack’d is worth seeing for the plethora of classic movie stars in the cast. Based on an Agatha Christie novel, it finds an American studio in a small English village making a film about Elizabeth I and Lady Jane Grey — and the film’s leads are rival actresses played by Elizabeth Taylor and Kim Novak. Hudson is along as the husband of Taylor’s character.
