A Tribute to Elizabeth Taylor

10 movies you must not miss if you love Liz

Elizabeth Taylor's Best Roles

Giant (1956)

George Stevens elicited some of Taylor's finest performances, and with Giant, the star began an astonishing run of films that established her as not just a pretty, porcelain face, but as a truly versatile big-screen actress. Here she's not just the wife of a high-powered rancher (Rock Hudson, in his only Oscar-nominated role), she's virtually the queen of Texas, a transplant from back East who starts out unsteadily as the mistress of a half-million-acre ranch but who grows to be an equal partner with her hubby. She also draws the unwanted attention of a ne'er-do-well ranch hand (James Dean), and although Rock mans up and gives the guy a good sock to the jaw, we do suspect that Liz could have handled it all by herself, thank you very much.
