February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011
Elizabeth Taylor was the idealisation movie star: violet-eyed, luminously beautiful, and bigger than life; nonetheless never the most means actress, she was the most magnetic, autocratic the spotlight with forlorn power. Few total have been the aim of such adoration, the aim of such ridicule, or the theme of such report and innuendo, and where so most prior to to and after her dry and died in the heated glisten of their fame, Taylor thrived; luminary was her lifeblood, the open eye her consistent companion. She knew no mediation — it was all or nothing. Whether great (two Oscars, a single of the initial million-dollar paychecks, and gift work), bad (health and weight problems, drug battles, and alternative tragedies), or nauseous (eight unsuccessful marriages, movie disasters, and large scandals), no delight or reversal was as good personal for media consumption.
Born Feb 27, 1932, in London, Taylor literally grew up in public. At the commencement of World War II, her family relocated to Hollywood, and by the age of 10 she was already underneath stipulate at Universal. She done her shade entrance in 1942′s There’s One Born Every Minute, followed a year after by a distinguished purpose in Lassie Come Home. For MGM, she co-starred in the 1944 instrumentation of Jane Eyre, afterwards appeared in The White Cliffs of Dover. With her initial lead purpose as a teenager equestrian in the 1944 family classical National Velvet, Taylor became a star. To their credit, MGM did not attainment her, notwithstanding her implausible beauty; she did not even reappear onscreen for dual some-more years, returning with Courage of Lassie. Taylor subsequent starred as Cynthia in 1947, followed by Life With Father. In Julia Misbehaves, she enjoyed her initial grown-up role, and afterwards portrayed Amy in the 1947 instrumentation of Little Women.
Taylor’s initial regretful lead came conflicting Robert Taylor in 1949′s Conspirator. Her adore hold up was already opening up offscreen as well; which same year she began dating millionaire Howard Hughes, though pennyless off the attribute to marry road house successor Nicky Hilton when she was only seventeen years old. The matrimony done general headlines, and in 1950 Taylor scored a vital strike as Spencer Tracy’s daughter in Vincente Minnelli’s Father of the Bride; a sequel, Father’s Little Dividend, premiered a year later. Renowned as a single of the world’s most pleasing women, Taylor was though mostly discharged as an thespian prior to to an glorious opening in the George Stevens play A Place in the Sun; soon, she was earning upwards of 5,000 dollars a week.
Taylor’s matrimony to Hilton valid short-lived, and in 1952 she tied together actor Michael Wilding. Often her regretful hold up overshadowed her career; indeed, her drive-in theatre of the early ’50s were mostly unused and often achieved feeble at the box office. In 1956, however, the thespian reunited with Stevens to star in his epic instrumentation of the Edna Ferber novel Giant. It was a blockbuster, as was her 1957 follow-up Raintree County, for which she warranted a Best Actress Oscar nomination. That same year, Taylor’s matrimony to Wilding ended, and she shortly voiced her much-publicized rendezvous to writer Mike Todd; his comfortless death in a craft pile-up the following year left her the world’s most glamorous widow, and her luminary grew even larger. Whatever magnetism audiences hold for Taylor fast vanished, however, when she was shortly identified as the alternative lady in the break-up of thespian Eddie Fisher and thespian Debbie Reynolds; their regretful triangle played out in the headlines of tabloids the world over, and nonetheless Taylor in the future stole Fisher away, the careers of all 3 performers were increased by the liaison — the open simply could not get enough.
Taylor’s voluptuous design was serve towering by an impossibly erotic opening in 1958′s Cat upon a Hot Tin Roof; an additional Tennessee Williams adaptation, Suddenly Last Summer, followed a year later, and both were rarely successful. To finish the conditions of her MGM contract, she grudgingly resolved to star in 1960′s Butterfield 8; upon completing the movie Taylor trafficked to Britain to proceed work upon the much-heralded Cleopatra, for which she perceived an rare one-million-dollar fee. In London she became dangerously ill, and underwent a life-saving puncture tracheotomy. Hollywood magnetism valid enough for her to win a Best Actress Oscar for Butterfield 8, nonetheless most of the great will lengthened toward her again dissolute in the arise of the ascent difficulties confronting Cleopatra. With 5 million dollars already spent, producers pulled the block and relocated the fire to Italy, replacing co-star Stephen Boyd with Richard Burton. The final total placed the movie at a price of 37 million dollars, creation it the most dear plan in movie history; scheduled for a 16-week shoot, the prolongation essentially took years, and notwithstanding plateau of pre-publicity, it was a outrageous mess at the box bureau upon the 1963 premiere.
Still, the notice paid to Cleopatra paled in some-more aged to the inspection which greeted Taylor’s ultimate romance, with Burton; she left Fisher to marry the actor in 1964, and maybe no Hollywood attribute was ever the theme of such heated media coverage.

Their real-life matrimony managed to survive, however, and after Taylor appeared conflicting Marlon Brando in 1967′s Reflections in a Golden Eye, she and Burton reunited for The Comedians. She additionally starred in Franco Zeffirelli’s The Taming of the Shrew, though nothing were successful at the box office; 1968′s Doctor Faustus was a disaster, and after which year Boom! unsuccessful to sum even one-quarter of the costs. After 1969′s Secret Ceremony, Taylor starred in The Only Game in Town, a year later; when they as good failed, her days of million-dollar salaries were over, and she began operative upon percentage.
With Burton, Taylor subsequent appeared in a tiny purpose in 1971′s Under Milk Wood; subsequent was X, Y and Zee, followed by an additional wedding collaboration, Hammersmith Is Out. In 1972 the Burtons additionally co-starred in a radio feature, Divorce His, Divorce Hers; the pretension valid prescient, as dual years later, the integrate did in truth divorce after a decade together. However, couple of expected the subsequent growth in their relationship: In 1975, it was voiced which Taylor and Burton had remarried, though this time their kinship lasted hardly a year. In the meantime, she was mostly absent from films, and did not reappear until 1976′s The Blue Bird; a year later, she starred in the telefilm Victory at Entebbe. Taylor resolved the decade with a inclusive detonate of underline drive-in theatre (A Little Night Music, Winter Kills, The Mirror Crack’d) and TV work (Return Engagement), though audiences no longer seemed interested.

They tied together in 1989, though similar to her alternative relationships, it did not last. In between, there was additionally the occasional movie or radio project. In 1988, she and Zeffirelli reunited for Young Toscanini, though the design was never released; a 1989 TV instrumentation of Sweet Bird of Youth warranted Taylor substantial publicity, though she didn’t crop up in an additional movie until 1994 with The Flintstones.
In 1997, the thespian once again became a featured publication subject when she underwent brain operation to mislay a soft tumor. The same year, she perceived courtesy of a some-more auspicious accumulation with Happy Birthday Elizabeth: A Celebration of Life, a TV special in which she was paid reverence by a series of stars together with Madonna, Shirley MacLaine, John Travolta, Dennis Hopper, and Cher.
