Thirteen never-seen-before photos of Dame Elizabeth Taylor have been published to mark the first anniversary of the Hollywood actress’ death.
Previously unseen photographs of Dame Elizabeth Taylor have been released to mark the first anniversary of her death.
The Hollywood icon passed away aged 79 from congestive heart failure on March 23 last year.
Life magazine has now published 13 photographs, which have never been seen before by the public. The gallery is to mark Elizabeth’s special relationship with the magazine – she graced the cover of the publication a record 14 times.
She first appeared in the magazine in 1947, when she was just 15.
Many of the images taken by Life magazine never made the final cut, so this gallery features pictures of Elizabeth previously stored in the archives.
The photos were taken while Elizabeth was starring in the 1951 drama A Place in the Sun. They also feature Elizabeth’s co-star and close friend Montgomery Clift, with the pair posing in the Paramount parking lot. Their close bond is evident in the black-and-white images, with them laughing and holding hands in several pictures.
The English-American star was considered to be one of the most talented and beautiful actresses of Hollywood’s golden age.
Elizabeth earned four Oscar nominations during her career and appeared in classic movies such as National Velvet, Cleopatra and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. © Cover Media
