From National Velvet to Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, through eight marriages, White Diamonds, and years of tireless humanitarian work, Elizabeth Taylor achieved truly iconic status. She made her screen debut in 1942 and ever after the public has been enamored of the famously violet-eyed legend. Why we love her is easy to see—we were astonished by her beauty, engrossed by her movie performances, and fascinated by her jet-setting lifestyle. This little book offers up more reminders of why, for more than seventy years, we always loved Elizabeth Taylor.
