It was a bit of a shock and such a shame to lose what may be the last of the great Hollywood stars from what was known as The Golden Age, so I was obviously going to watch this documentary about her. Dame Elizabeth Taylor was a beautiful and talented actress known for some of the finest and most memorable films in history, and this tribute programme showed us some clips from those films, such as Lassie Coem Home, National Velvet, A Place in the Sun, Giant, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, BUtterfield 8 (which she won her first Oscar for), Cleopatra, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (which she won her second Oscar for) and The Mirror Crack'd. The programme also focuses on her personal life, including her famous eight marriages to Conrad Hilton Jr., Michael Wilding, Michael Todd, Eddie Fisher, Richard Burton (twice), John Warner and Larry Fortensky, and her charity work which earned her a knighthood. With contributions from Pierce Brosnan, Joan Collins, Sir David Frost, Larry King, Angela Lansbury, William J. Mann, Richard Burton's nephew Guy Masterson, Barry Norman and Margaret O'Brien. Very good!
