Overview

She was called the most beautiful woman in the world, but Elizabeth Taylor was far more than a pretty face—she was one of the greatest actresses the movies have ever known. From her first success in National Velvet when she was just 12 years old, to her stunning performances in A Place in the Sun, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Suddenly, Last Summer to her Oscar-winning role in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and beyond—Elizabeth Taylor showed herself to be a force to be reckoned with.

Elizabeth Taylor: Her Place in the Sun is a film retrospective that spans her 70-year career, featuring production histories, “behind-the-scenes” stories, and reviews for each film. Featuring hundreds of rare photos, it’s a dazzling tribute to Elizabeth Taylor, the film star.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

New York Daily News
“She was once considered the most beautiful woman in the world, and there’s plenty of evidence to support that in this illustrated filmography that spans a 70-year career.”

Praise for Cindy De La Hoz's books:

Lana. "One of the best books I've ever read about a star." — Leonard Maltin

Lucy at the Movies. "Lucy at the Movies is comprehensive and enlightening....The book is worth the price just for the biography, but the photos make it even more special. ...A must-have for any Ball fan." — The Advocate, December 16, 2007

Marilyn Monroe: Platinum Fox. "...this lavish, luxurious coffee-table volume chronicles Monroe's Hollywood career with hundreds of photos, including candid, never-published-before on-the-set snapshots, and insights into the dramatic skills that were usually overshadowed by a hyper-glamorized sexpot façade." — American Profile

"Platinum Fox' is a slickly packaged scrapbook served up like a luscious dessert." — Asbury Park Press, December 23, 2007

She survived because she was living with her grandparents. She has no clue they are dead, her grandparents told her her parents were lost at sea, having been forced to go to britain on buissness. She felt strongly for the brave protestors at the boston massacre and stole a liutenant's uniform. She is now going by the name of 'james smith'. She was present at the battle of saratoga and helped turn the tide of war. That was before the time warp./ other rps: 'spe' result 3 as ikaros and 'broken mirror' result one as joelene. Anything else, ask.

Roleplayed since I got my nook for christmas of 2012. I've become an expert over two years. I've become a good semi-advanced rper and I'm Catholic, so you don't have to worry about that se.x cra<_>p. I'm only applying because I'm interested in the time travel part. I'm a fan of Doctor Who, you see. <p> I also figured out that Nook simple touch reviews use HTML code. I've been roing for a long time. I even know what BBCode is .
