COVER STORY: ELIZABETH TAYLOR: A LIFE OF PASSION, AND A PASSION FOR LIFE

British transplant Elizabeth Taylor was one of Hollywood’s most elegant and beautiful talents and her filmography was certainly not a list of titles in which some “dumb brunette” might have starred. No, she was a consumate actor, with great depth and formidable acting instincts. From traditional classics to avant-garde contemporary drama, she was queen of the silver screen – and a Dame of the British Empire. Internationally feted, as her 1956 covershot on the trendy Paris Match shows, she was a world celebrity. Our story recalls the magic of a marvellous woman who dazzled and entertained generations of stamp collectors… Vale Liz! We shall miss you.
