Sheridan Morley's achievement in this thoughtful, clear-sighted book is to strip away the layers of media hype and mythology to reveal the true features of a unique and remarkable actress. Morely traces Taylor's development as an actress from the child films of the 1940s to Butterfield 8, for which she won an Oscar. Morley also considers the Cleopatra fiasco, as well as her more literary work including The Taming of the Shrew and Under Milk Wood - and her successful move to television work. The infamous private life is dealt with as it interacts with Taylor's career.
