Television biography sometimes hits and sometimes misses.
Although Liz: The Elizabeth Taylor Story does not offer any real new information on the celebrity, star biography fans will find a few tidbits to savor. The soap opera of Elizabeth Taylor's life is played out like your typical made-for-television movie. However, some of the casting was physically inspiring. Yes, part of the striking resemblances to the real people were due to makeup, but the makeup artists definitely had a good foundation. Sherilyn Fenn possesses the same striking beauty as Taylor and in some scenes the similarities between the two actresses are startling. In addition, the actor who portrays Montgomery Clift also makes fans of Clift's movies do a double-take. Don't expect too much, but for a hot summer afternoon with little else to do the movie is a good waste of time.
