Elizabeth Taylor Movie Favorites


First you will want to watch Elizabeth Taylor when she was a child. You can cry your eyes out watching Lassie Come Home as the beautiful intelligent collie finds her way back home from the Scottish Highlands.


Elizabeth Taylor went from dogs to horses in another three kleenex movie National Velvet. Mickey Rooney helps Elizabeth as Velvet Brown train her horse for the Grand Nationals.


There have been many movie versions of the wonderful story Little Women but this might turn out to be your favorite. Elizabeth Taylor plays Amy.


The original Father of the Bride has Spencer Tracy in a tailspin over the upcoming wedding of his lovely daughter played by Elizabeth Taylor. This movie might have been made in 1950 but today's fathers of the bride will definitely identify.


Elizabeth Taylor's first adult role came in the powerful tragedy A Place in the Sun paired with Montgomery Clift. They were stunningly beautiful together.


Giant is an epic motion picture as they used to say. It's remembered for many things including being James Dean's last movie (playing a character named Jett Rink) but we think you will remember it as just great entertainment and one of Elizabeth Taylor's best roles.


Tennessee Williams created two great characters Brick and Maggie in his powerful play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and when it came time to cast the movie Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman made the roles their own. (Can anyone match these two in the beautiful eyes department?)


Elizabeth Taylor appears in another adaptation of a Tennessee Williams play. Suddenly, Last Summer. A movie that was considered shocking for its time still has the power to shake you up today.


No one thought it was a great movie and very few people think it was her best performance but Hollywood owed Elizabeth Taylor an Oscar and she got it for Butterfield 8.


This movie was a scandal all the way around. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were scandalizing the world with their sizzling love affair, the amount of money spent was unheard of at the time and the critics hated the final movie but if you're in the mood for some over the top epic melodrama Cleopatra is the movie for you.


Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? offers a master class in acting. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton drink, argue, insult and abuse each other in intense performances. Don't watch this movie if you are looking for a way to relax.


Shakespeare's great comedy The Taming of the Shrew gave us a perfect pairing of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor as Petruchio and Katharina the Shrew.


We're going to consider this Elizabeth Taylor's last good movie because it's a lot of fun. She plays an aging movie star in an Agatha Christie Miss Marple mystery The Mirror Crack'd.
