Digital Gelatin Silver Print, with artist’s estate blind stamp lower right.
Playing socialite Leslie Lynnton in the 1956 film “Giant,” Elizabeth Taylor is captured here striking a coy pose for photographer Frank Worth between takes. Worth was given behind-the-scenes access on the set through his friendship with Taylor’s co-star James Dean. Known for her otherworldly glamour and beauty, Elizabeth Taylor won two Academy Awards during her career and was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute, who named her on their list of “Greatest American Screen Legends.”
