Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton: Endless Love

March 23, 2011 marked the end of an era with the passing of the last Classic Hollywood icon, Dame Elizabeth Taylor. Known for her roles in iconic films such as "Cat On a Hot Tin Roof", "The Sandpiper", "Cleopatra", "Butterfield 8", and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf"; Elizabeth Taylor is also remembered for her love story with Richard Burton.

The Taylor Burtons were perhaps the most famous and glamourous couple of the 60s and part of the 70s. Despite their final divorce in 1976, they were married two times, Elizabeth and Richard remained great friends and never forgot each other.

Elizabeth Taylor also made headlines due to her larger than life persona, her sense of style, and of course her impressive jewelry collection.

Last but not least, Elizabeth Taylor will also be remembered for creating awareness towards AIDS (she was the first one to address it on a public and massive scale) and fighting it with the help of her charities.
