Description: Frequently the target of scandalous tabloid headlines, Elizabeth Taylor's love affairs and failed marriages have captured the attention of the American public for almost half a century. Just when we thought we knew everything about this American screen siren, Ellis Amburn blows the lid off of some of Hollywood's best-kept secrets. In The Most Beautiful Woman in the World, he taps into unexplored primary sources to expose the tragedies and triumphs of Taylor's life, including the successful removal of a golf-ball-sized brain tumor, the launching of a fragrance line that took off like a rocket, breaking her back twice in two years, and her relationship with Rod Steiger, who lured her back to life from a nervous breakdown. Amburn also reveals Taylor's tragic and heartbreaking affection for Montgomery Clift and James Dean; Taylor's disastrous marriage to the abusive and philandering Nicky Hilton, who abandoned Liz on their honeymoon to be with another woman; cunning Eddie Fisher, who forced Liz to appear at his Las Vegas shows in order to bring in capacity crowds; and Richard Burton's homosexual activities and his exploitation of Taylor.
