A video tribute to the legendary movie star

Elizabeth Taylor was the last great star of classic Hollywood, and the first of a new breed of super-celebrity. From her star-making turn in “National Velvet” at the age of 12, she lived life in the spotlight. Despite being one of the most charismatic actresses on screen, it was her private life that most fascinated the public. Her eight marriages and lavish, jet-set lifestyle filled the tabloids. She never shied away from speaking her mind and spent the last decades of her life using her celebrity to raise money in the fight against AIDS. We remember Elizabeth Taylor and the grand life she lived.
