A pretty child, Elizabeth Taylor grew up to be a sexy and voluptuous woman. Elizabeth Taylor was as famous for her many high profile marriages, and illnesses, as her movies. Her defining role would have to be as "Maggie" in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof", opposite Paul Newman. Notable films include: "A Place in the Sun", "National Velvet", and "Giant". Elizabeth Taylor won two Best Actress Awards ("Butterfield Eight" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?")

Elizabeth Taylor was married to filmmaker Michael "Around the World in 80 Days" Todd, who died in a plane crash. Actor Richard Burton is said to have been the great love of her life, but they couldn't make marriage work though they tried it twice. Liz Taylor was described as the last of the great American stars, a description she more than lived up to.

Her most recent film is "The Flintstones" and a ABC television movie "These Old Broads" with Joan Collins, Shirley MacLaine, and Debbie Reynolds. More
