商品の説明

内容紹介

Child-star in "National Velvet", the youthful object of desire who was controlled by her mother and by MGM, Oscar winning actress in "Butterfield 8" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", seductress and eight-times wife, champion of AIDS research, intimate of celebrities and billionaire tycoons - for more than six decades Elizabeth Taylor has played most completely, beautifully, scandalously, flamboyantly and cunningly her greatest role of all, that of herself. This biography draws on interviews and extensive research, to tell the story of the remarkable and turbulent life of a woman of near-mythic stature. --このテキストは、絶版本またはこのタイトルには設定されていない版型に関連付けられています。

I've not seen many Liz Taylor's movies before, but since I read the book, I became highly interested to see her films, just to be able to check what I read in this book with how she performs/appears in a particular movie as mentioned in the book. In the beginning of my reading, the book gives me a mix feeling towards Liz Taylor, more negative than positive. But after I finished reading I really felt for her. In short, the story reveals her complicated life in the most open manner. It tells everything you want to know about Liz Taylor, from birth up to the latest marriage (and divorce). It also exposes her severe addiction to drugs and alcohol which is very shocking. What a life story! I enjoy reading the book because it flows smoothly, it is insightful and it gives detail information for every occassion in the story. It is a great book to read.

5つ星のうち 5.0 "The Definitive Liz Taylor Biography" 2010/11/19
投稿者 Terrance Richard - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
Look on any Amazon book page and type in Elizabeth Taylor; there you will find dozens of books written on one of the biggest Hollywood stars of all-time. This book, simply entitled "Liz" and written by "A Woman Named Jackie" author C. David Heymann, is a well-written and well-researched account on the most popular female star of her time. In these 526 pages Heymann traces Liz's early beginnings in England to her discovery as a child actress in "National Velvet". That appearance would propell her to Hollywood superstardom that few have ever known.

"Liz" traces not only Taylor's magificent acting career in such Oscar-winning performances in "Butterfield 8" and "Who'a Afraid of Virginia Wolf?", but Liz's personal life, her marriages and lovers. Heyman not only discusses how Liz was the very first Hollywood celebrity to tackle the AIDS epidemic and raise funds and awareness for those with HIV/AIDS, but her own personal demons with alcohol and prescription drugs.

Included is an informative filmography detailing Liz's film credits along with those she starred with, director's names, and the year in which her movies were released. There is also a section of her made-for-television films and stage appearances. Many black and white photographs are included.

I have read many Elizabeth Taylor biographies, but "Liz" is simply filled with neat anecdotes and info. The book is long out-of-print, but many are available through Amazon by personal sellers at affordable prices.

The pictures of beautiful child-star Liz Taylor to the Liz of the 90's are fabulous. Beautifully written book of a Hollywood legend. Absorbing and juicy. Intimate look at her glamourous and turbulent life. Her many romances with famous men, her movie career, weight swings, battles with drug and alcohol dependence, humanitarian work. Really gives you the feeling of knowing her.

5つ星のうち 2.0 Less than intimate 2005/4/9
投稿者 EA Solinas - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
With her eight marriages, long-running drug problems and lingering medical ailments, Elizabeth Taylor is a perfect candidate for trashy tabloidy biographies. While C. David Heymann's "Liz: An Intimate Biography of Elizabeth Taylor" is not the worst of the bunch, his obvious disdain makes for sour reading.

For some time, Elizabeth Taylor was the image of the child star -- talented, gutsy and willing to do almost anything (even try to speed up physical growth) to get a part. But after a failed marriage to hotel heir Nicky Hilton and an increasingly sultry image, Elizabeth began to change radically. Suddenly she was the Cleopatra of the times.

She went through several marriages, to Michael Wilding, the tragic Mike Todd, a scandalous affair and marriage to Eddie Fisher (who was married), and finally spent many long years with the tempestuous Richard Burton (who was also married), whom she married twice. Her once red-hot career went into decline, as her last two forgettable marriages tanked. But Elizabeth Taylor remains a towering movie legend even today.

Since she was the J.Lo of her day -- bling, lots of husbands and opulence all around -- Taylor is a pretty juicy subject for a biographer... IF the biographer can repress his inner tabloid journalist. Heymann keeps himself restrained much of the time, focusing a lot of Elizabeth's career and the impact of the people around her.

It's death to a biography if the author has no respect, let alone liking, for his subject. And Heymann shows nothing but disdain not only for Elizabeth, but for her husbands and lovers. He emphasizes Taylor's yoyoing obesity, her sometimes immaturity, her gaudy dress/makeup/jewelry styles, and her lack of education. Her husbands are all caricatures. For example, Richard Burton is portrayed merely as a weak sot, and little mention is made of his intelligence, his eloquence, or his astounding acting ability.

Aside from the superficiality and occasional sexual anecdotes, Heymann does a pretty good job of chronicling not only Taylor's career, but that of the people around her such as her good friends Rock Hudson and Montgomery Clift, as well as her tireless crusading for AIDS victims and her forays into the world of... perfume. Whatever. Nothing new is revealed, but it's a passable look at her life.

However, the obvious dislike Heymann has for Taylor and her assorted amours makes "Liz: An Intimate Biography of Elizabeth Taylor" a pain to read.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Meticulously-Researched Biographt 2016/7/30

David Heymann did his research well, interviewing a THOUSAND of Elizabeth Taylor's costars, friends, relatives and yes - even her husbands, including Richard Burton. He utilized the archives of the studios and Ms. Taylor's own writings and the result is a biography that gives perhaps the best look into the life of a Hollywood icon the reader can possibly get without reading his subject's mind. Budding actress, ingenue, movie star, homewrecker, beauty queen, fashion plate, humanitarian - it's all in these pages.

Ms. Taylor's history is almost a portrait of the motion picture industry itself. She began as a child hopeful in the industry's early days, when studios put their stars under contract and the actor literally signed their life away. What you wore, where you were seen, which films you did - all was determined by men such as Louie B. Mayer and William Fox. Elizabeth's career was almost sidelined on more than one occasion because MGM disapproved of her apparel (such as the evening gown she wore for a birthday bash) or her then-scandalous romance with Eddie Fisher.

A grande dame all her life, Ms. Taylor managed to stay in the public eye despite a waning of her career in from the 1970s onward. Her jet-set lifestyle, passion for high-priced and iconic jewelry (remember La Peregrina and the Krupp Diamond?) as well as her passionate romances with famous and powerful men such as Malcolm Forbes and John Warner kept her in the spotlight throughout the 80s and 90s. She was one of the first celebrities to take up the battle against AIDS after several of her colleagues and personal friends, particularly Rock Hudson and her daughter-in-law, were stricken with the disease. Her deep interest in the humanitarian were notable during an era that helped spawn today's self-obsessed diva types and reality-show "stars."

Ms. Taylor's acting skills were far from mediocre, despite the often-bland productions that slowed her career later in life. Her iconic roles in "Butterfield 8" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?" won her two Academy Awards, and she had an impressive record of nominations that are often overlooked by modern film fans.

Ms. Taylor lives on today through her line of fragrances and the body of work she left behind. Film fans, motion picture historians and fans of Ms. Taylor herself will enjoy this excellent, in-depth and meticulously researched biography. She was an actress, a lover, a compassionate human being and always, always a star.
