Elizabeth Taylor To Be Honored With TV Marathon
Late Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor's life will be celebrated as part of a 24-hour movie marathon on TV on April 10th.
Bosses at the Turner Classic Movies (TCM) network have scrapped all programming and will run back-to-back Taylor films instead - to honor the passing of the two-time Oscar winner.
The tribute will begin with a showing of Butterfield 8 at 6am (ET) and feature screenings of classics like Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Giant, Lassie Come Home, National Velvet and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The network will also air the 1949 spy drama Conspirator, which features Taylor in her first adult role.
In addition to TCM's on-air tribute to Taylor, the 2011 TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood will feature a special 60th anniversary screening of her performance opposite Montgomery Clift in George Stevens' A Place in the Sun (1951).
The TCM Classic Film Festival takes place from April 28th to May 1st.
Taylor died of congestive heart failure on Wednesday morning.
