Remembering a Hollywood Legend: Elizabeth Taylor

By Back|Story staff, CNN

British born Elizabeth Taylor started her career as a child acress, entertaining us through the years. She lived her life in the spotlight. So much so that she is considered to be one of the first celebrities to be followed by paparazzi style photographers. 

We spoke to Larry King today about her. He first met Liz Taylor in Miami when he was working in Radio and Television. He gave us some insights (that only Larry can) into her life; through his experiences meeting her at Hollywood parties and interviewing her on his show that ran for years on CNN.

Take a look at the segment that we put together today. We hope you enjoy all of the iconic photos of Liz through the years as much as we enjoyed bringing them to you.
