1.0 out of 5 starsThis is a great example of lazy filmmaking
Verified purchase
This is a great example of lazy filmmaking. 70% of the footage is just clips (sometimes 4-5 minutes long) from her movies, interviews, and trailers, without any commentary at all. The 30% of the movie with commentary or point of view has such stilted dialogue that it seems it was written overnight or on the spot, and delivered by a narrator who must've paused at the end of each line on the page, whether punctuation called of for it or not. It's offensive because I don't think there's any way anyone involved with the making of the film (let alone anyone at Amazon who decided to put this in rotation) thought this is a decent film - but they thought somehow the audience wouldn't notice what a giant turd they were trying to pass off as a film.

5.0 out of 5 starsA Timeless Stunning Beauty!!!
Verified purchase
A Timeless Stunning Beauty!!! I truly enjoyed this "unauthorized" biography. Sure, I do understand other's reviews that would have liked to have seen more on Elizabeth's childhood and family life, but there are other info outlets to obtain additional information at. Her life was AMAZING and what a star! Then, of course, her tumultuous personal life, with on and off screen romances, multiple marriages/divorces - including marrying one of her best friends husbands (Eddie Fisher), near death illnesses, rehab stays, AIDS research, a successful perfume line, having rare beautiful violet eyes, even sadly she was rag mag fodder too many times...the list goes on. Through her 79 years, this fabulously gorgeous & talented star was a remarkable lady, who truly lived ....

4.0 out of 5 starsA Great Beauty, Bigger Than Life.
Verified purchase
I grew up reading about the love affair between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. They were both fascinating and intelligent people who seemed to love each other. I appreciate knowing more about Elizabeth Taylor's rise as a star and accomplished actress. A great beauty, she was surely bigger than life!

I wanted to watch this video about Elizabeth Taylor on Amazon. She was a very famous movie star I've heard about since I was a teenager. I remember Elizabeth did very few tweets in Twitter until her death. I know her favorite color is purple. She was beautiful.
