Storyline

The story of Elizabeth Taylor's rise to stardom, beginning in Los Angeles 1942. Her dominating mother has decided that her daughter must become a star - no matter what others or Elizabeth herself think. Assisted by Hedda Hopper, she gets a part in Lassie Come Home (1943). She becomes a child star, raised by her studio. Growing up, she has several love-affairs - and several divorces, since her husbands can't accept being married to a Hollywood icon. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Goofs

The 1940s audiences watch a trailer is for National Velvet (1944). The trailer ends with a "G-rating" classification. These ratings were not in use until the 1960s - the filmmakers obviously used the '70s re-release version. See more »

Not such a horrible job...
16 May 2005 | by (Fort Smith) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was somewhat interesting, for one reason: Given the fact that to actually +portray+ Richard Burton himself is a task to daunt the bravest -- to be blunt, I'd have said it couldn't be done at all -- I was surprised to find that Angus MacFadyen turned in not so poor a performance in this role. His size and build appear to be similar to Burton's; though the face is not really the same, neither is it very wide of the mark. The real test, of course, is that famous voice -- and here, also, he does a creditable job of impersonation. MacFadyen, in this role, actually to some extent achieves the "suspension of disbelief" so necessary to a believable story.
