It'd be difficult to pinpoint a single reason for Elizabeth Taylor's immeasurable popularity. Was it her buxom curves and doe-like eyes, or her wild, controversial love life that led to an eventual eight marriages? Perhaps it was the hundreds of millions of dollars that she raised for AIDS research, or the several serious illnesses that threatened her own life.

Explanations aside, Liz was one of the most memorable actresses of all time. From her first Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role in 1957 for "Raintree County" to her final victory for "Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" in 1966, she dominated the silver screen.

"Elizabeth Taylor: A Shining Legacy on Film" [Running Press, $30.00] chronicles the actress' 60-year film career with behind-the-scenes photos from her beloved films. Check out these rare, intimate photos of Elizabeth Taylor from the book:
