Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011) was a British-American actress, businesswoman, and humanitarian. She began her career as a child actress in the 1940s, and went on to become one of the most popular stars of classical Hollywood cinema in the 1950s. She had a successful career into the 1960s, and remained a well-known public figure for the rest of her life. She has had three films in which she starred, "National Velvet", "Giant", and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" which have been preserved in the National Film Registry, and the American Film Institute has named her the seventh greatest female screen legend of classical Hollywood cinema. Elizabeth Taylor's legacy remains as a cultural icon, who was one of the last stars of classical Hollywood cinema, and also one of the first modern celebrities.
