Yet, despite all the gossip, the larger-than-life personality and influence of this very human woman has never been captured. William Mann, praised by Gore Vidal, Patricia Bosworth, and Gerald Clarke for Kate, uses untapped sources and conversations to show how she ignited the sexual revolution with her on- and off-screen passions, helped kick down the studio system by taking control of her own career, and practically invented the big business of celebrity star-making. With unputdownable storytelling he tells the full truth without losing Taylor's magic, daring, or wit. Readers will feel they are sitting next to Taylor as she rises at MGM, survives a marriage engineered for publicity, feuds with Hedda Hopper and Mr. Mayer, wins Oscars, endures tragedy, juggles Eddie Fisher, Richard Burton and her country's conservative values. But it is the private Elizabeth that will surprise-a woman of heart and loyalty, who defends underdogs, a savvy professional whose anger at the studio's treatment of her led to a lifelong battle against that very system. All the Elizabeth's are here, finally reconciled and seen against the exciting years of her greatest spirit, beauty, and influence. Swathed in mink, staring us down with her lavender eyes, disposing of husbands but keeping the diamonds, here is Elizabeth Taylor as she was meant to be, leading her epic life on her own terms, playing the game of supreme stardom at which she remains, to this day, unmatched+-+491986290511956ocn043986597book20000.15Amburn, EllisThe most beautiful woman in the world : the obsessions, passions, and courage of Elizabeth TaylorBiographyAn expose of Elizabeth Taylor's private life covers her brain surgery, her successful fragrance line, her recovery from a near nervous breakdown, and her relationships with her husbands and other men+-+K1284651555932ocn049576492book20020.15Taylor, ElizabethElizabeth Taylor : my love affair with jewelryProfiles the film star's collection of jewelry, providing descriptions of her most noteworthy pieces and describing their representation of particular relationships and events in her life+-+93890789255798ocn754186806book20110.21Lord, M. GThe accidental feminist : how Elizabeth Taylor raised our consciousness and we were too distracted by her beauty to noticeBiographyMovie stars build their roles into brands--and the Taylor brand is startlingly feminist. In her breakout film, "National Velvet" (1944), Taylor challenged gender discrimination, playing a jockey who had to pose as a male to race. Her next landmark, "A Place in the Sun" (1951), tackles abortion rights. In "Butterfield 8" (1960), she is censured not because she's a prostitute, but because she controls her own sexuality. And the classic "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966) depicts the anguish that befalls a woman when the only way she can express herself is through her husband's career and children. Taylor's personal life, too, is remarkable: financially autonomous, she supported her parents as a teenager. As an adult, she supported the right of people to love whomever they love--regardless of gender. Her legendary friendships with her gay male costars inspired her to become a major fundraiser for AIDS research in the 1980s, before the cause became fashionable. Drawing upon unpublished letters and scripts, as well as interviews with Gore Vidal, Robert Forster, Austin Pendleton, Kevin McCarthy and others, this is a long overdue reappraisal.--From publisher description+-+04116275355754ocn000886157book19740.22Sheppard, DickElizabeth: the life and career of Elizabeth TaylorBiography5657ocn022625393book19900.17Walker, AlexanderElizabeth : the life of Elizabeth TaylorBiographyBiografie van de Amerikaanse filmactrice (1932- )+-+04128675354639ocn003168936book19770.22Maddox, BrendaWho's afraid of Elizabeth Taylor?Biography4222ocn682894325book20110.14Tiel, VickyIt's all about the dress : what I learned in forty years about men, women, sex and fashionHistoryBiographyAn influential fashion designer shares highlights and lessons from her extensive career, from flunking out of fashion design school to owning a boutique in Paris, befriending Elizabeth Taylor, and becoming a fashion design icon+-+64540176853841ocn000217914book19650.25Taylor, ElizabethElizabeth Taylor; an informal memoirBiography3722ocn830731495visu20120.12Liz & DickDramaFor nearly a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were Hollywood royalty and their fiery romance, often called the marriage of the century, was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day.

From her first success in National Velvet when she was just 12 years old, to her stunning performances in A Place in the Sun, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Suddenly, Last Summer to her Oscar-winning role in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and beyond--Elizabeth Taylor showed herself to be a force to be reckoned with. Elizabeth Taylor: Her Place in the Sun is a film retrospective that spans her 70-year career, featuring production histories, "behind-the-scenes" stories, and reviews for each film.

Five young actors became sensations: Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Natalie Wood, Montgomery Clift and James Dean. In their different ways each epitomized the mood and ambitions of the youth of their day. Sexy, rebellious, alluring, they emerged as idols of their generation, and through their work and mutual friendship, they became intimately bound up with one another. But their lives were ultimately torn apart--in many ways by the system that created them--and only one of them, Elizabeth Taylor, lived into old age. This extensively researched book follows the dreams, struggles, achievements and anguish of these influential and perennially popular stars, during an era that witnessed the disintegration of the studio system, the advent of television, the nightmare of McCarthyism and the realism of postwar America.--From publisher description2876ocn032700720book19950.16Spoto, DonaldElizabeth TaylorBiographyOver half a century after her movie debut at the age of ten, Elizabeth Taylor is the only star from Hollywood's Golden Age who continues to hit the headlines.
