Elizabeth Taylor Has Died

Actress and author Elizabeth Taylor has passed away today. She was 79-years-old. Above, we’ve embedded a trailer for one of her most celebrated films, Cleopatra.

In 2002, Taylor published My Love Affair with Jewelry which included photographs of her personal collection shot by John Bigelow Taylor. Amazon lists three books written by the star. Taylor also won two Academy Awards for literary adaptations.

Here’s more from The Washington Post: “She made more than 60 films and twice won the Oscar for best actress: as a call girl who meets with tragedy in BUtterfield 8 (1960), based on the John O’Hara novella; and as the braying, slovenly wife of a professor in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), adapted from Edward Albee’s play about marital warfare. Virginia Woolf was a rare critical triumph for Ms. Taylor, whom reviewers often found insubstantial or overwrought.”
