Synopsis

Born in London but raised in the old Hollywood studio system, Elizabeth Taylor remains a silver-screen icon. A favorite leading lady of Tennessee Williams, she dazzled as Shakespeare's Kate and won an Oscar as Edward Albee's Martha. She is one of the most famous women in the world and is remembered for her seven husbands, jewelry, flamboyant lifestyle and social activism. Elizabeth Taylor shares her reminiscences of Richard Burton, Montgomery Clift, Rock Hudson, James Dean and Paul Newman; the pain and pleasure of two Oscars; and her dawning sense of responsibility at the onset of the AIDS crisis. The program also features extended sequences from some of her films -- as well as an outtake from a star-turn on her favorite soap opera, "General Hospital."
