Writers To Put Down Picket Signs For Elizabeth Taylor's AIDS Benefit

Posted: Updated:

Elizabeth Taylor says striking TV and film writers will briefly put down their picket signs when an AIDS benefit performance is held next month on the Paramount Pictures lot.

Taylor and James Earl Jones are slated to perform A.R. Gurney's play "Love Letters" on Dec. 1, which is World AIDS Day. The goal of the one-night performance is to raise $1 million for The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.

The 75-year-old actress said she wouldn't cross picket lines if they were still up around the Paramount lot.
