Overview
Elizabeth Taylor defines movie star. Breathtakingly beautiful from a very young age, she most successfully made the rare transition from child star to adult star. Pocketing two Best Actress Oscars and numerous other honors for achievement in acting, Elizabeth battled an overbearing stage mother, a strong handed studio, unhappy marriages, global media attention, alcohol and prescription drug addiction, and lifelong health problems to emerge, if not victorious, resolute and reflective and appreciative of all that she had experienced and learned. In addition to her career, Elizabeth is well known for her seven husbands and eight marriages, two of which were to the tempestuous Welsh actor Richard Burton, and for her magnificent jewelry collection. Her fight for funding to support AIDS/HIV research was also a major part of her life's work after her acting career was largely over. Filled with photos of Elizabeth, her husbands, her leading men, and her four children, this book tells the story of Ms. Taylor's almost unbelievable life as leading lady, jet-setter, and adulteress, as well as a pretty down-to-earth person simply seeking happiness. Her story is fascinating, just as she was.
