Happy Birihday Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor was born in London to American parents on February 27, 1932. She was a pretty child who signed her first movie contract in 1941 and made her screen debut at age 9.

Always graceful, Elizabeth Taylor grew from a sensitive child star to a glamorous film actress. In a career that spanned 70 years and over 50 films, she won two Academy Awards for Best Actress. Her first was as a call girl in "BUtterfield 8" and then as the vitriolic Martha in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf."

Often named the most beautiful woman in the world, Taylor's unforgettable violet eyes, creamy white skin, and raven hair contributed to her allure.

When describing Elizabeth Taylor, director George Stevens is quoted as saying, "Marilyn Monroe was a sex goddess, Grace Kelly the ice queen, Audrey Hepburn the eternal gamine, Ms Taylor was beauty incarnate."
