Elizabeth Taylor: Old Hollywood Survivor

“Unlike Marilyn, Liz survived.” So writes The New York Times’ Manohla Dargis in a remembrance of Elizabeth Taylor. “And it was that survival as much as the movies and fights with the studios, the melodramas and men (so many melodramas, so many men!) that helped separate Ms. Taylor from many other old-Hollywood stars.” Taylor, says Dargis, “never looked defeated.” As a tribute, Turner Classic Movies will host a 24-hour Taylor movie marathon on April 10.
