Synopsis: This tribute to the life and films of Elizabeth Taylor follows her career from her work as a child star during the 1940s to the present
From Library Journal:
Though Taylor's life has been fodder for the gossip columns since her emergence as a child star, little has been written that evaluates her talent as a film actress or accounts for her unique power and popularity as a celebrity. Morley, son of actor Robert and grandson of character actress Gladys Cooper, has been privy to the acting scene for some years and has written other celebrity biographies (of David Niven, Katharine Hepburn), and he brings to the genre a decidedly British slant and a certain bitchiness that is fun and enlightening. This is no Kitty Kelley star-bashing ( Elizabeth Taylor: The Last Star, LJ 10/15/81), nor is it short on the insights needed to understand this star, as is Taylor's own recent effort Elizabeth Takes Off ( LJ 9/15/88). It is admiring but realistic. Though the text is well done, this is almost a pictorial work. The photographs are wonderful and capture Taylor's beauty. The most up-to-date and objective treatment of this major actress thus far. Recommended.

Book Description Pavilion Books, London, 1988. Paper Back. Condition: Very Good Plus. No Jacket. Book has small bump to front bottom corner. Elizabeth Taylor was arguably the last great star produced by the studio system and it is unlikely that any actress will ever again be as famoues as she was at her peak while filming Cleopatra. Yet it is a perverse irony that, in spite of all the attention she has received, this is the first book to consider Taylor primarily as an actress rather than as glamorous media star of the more tempestuous half of The Burtons.
