When they made this movie in 1956 Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and James Dean were each at the height of their careers. They could have made any movie they wanted. They chose to work together in this epic story of a Texas cattle baron, his east coast wife and the outcast ranch hand who disrupts their lives when he becomes part of the new oil-rich elite. It's a good movie, well acted and beautifully shot. It also carries the distinction of being the last movie that James Dean would ever make. Please enjoy our Tribute to Giant.
With all the focus on her personal life what gets lost is the fact that she has a superb acting talent that never fails to entertain. Take another look at the work in our Tribute to exquisite silver screen beauty … Elizabeth Taylor.
