Hosted by


Elizabeth Taylor died of congestive heart failure last night after six weeks at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She was 79 years old. In sixty years, Taylor appeared in more than 50 films and won two Oscars. She was married eight times — twice to leading man Richard Burton — and was known as a relentless campaigner against HIV/AIDS. Kenneth Turan, film critic for the Los Angeles Times and NPR, looks back at her life and career.
