From the time she appeared in National Velvet, the film that skyrocketed her to international fame at age twelve in 1944, until her death in 2011, Elizabeth Taylor's beauty, allure, and personal strength captivated the world. In a career that spanned more than sixty years, she brought her raw talent and magnetism to bear in w-classic films such as Father of the Bride , Suddenly , Last Summer , Cat on a Hot Tin Roof , Giant , Cleopatra , and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? . Off screen, she lived just as passionately. That intensity brought her ermous joy and pain-and toriety, whether it was from her vast collections of extraordinary fine jewelry and art to her battles with addiction and ill heath, from her internationally recognized humanitarian efforts on behalf of AIDS to her scandalous love affairs and seven highly scrutinized marriages. This anthology - illustrated with more than 30 gorgeous images of the star throughout her career and personal life - reveals the candor and honesty with which the actress led her extraordinary life. Whether witty or poignant, these words are always demonstrative of her generous, unapologetic, and fiercely determined nature, reflecting the essence of a great star and legendary modern woman.
