Elizabeth Taylor 1932-2011

Remembering Hollywood's Queen, Elizabeth Taylor

Taylor married for the third time, in 1957, to movie producer Mike Todd – who was 25 years her senior. "I have had two great loves in my life. Mike Todd was the first," Taylor later wrote.

"I honestly didn't think I would survive and didn't much care if I did not," she later said of mourning the father of her daughter, Liza.
