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

Good entertainment!
5 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

Oh, come on! This was fun! As tv mini series about famous people go this was quite good. Some good lines, good sets and costumes and a little trashy.

Sherilyn Fenn is sensational! She´s very good, giving Liz Taylor some depth being both good and bad. Worth seeing again! Ms. Fenn deserves better movies and should be a HUGE star, really! She´s captivatingly beautiful, spunky and can act!!! sigh...
