Elizabeth Taylor Interviewed by Edward R. Murrow (1957)
The world mourns the loss of another legend today. Elizabeth Taylor passed away after suffering congestive heart failure.
I wanted to share this interview with Elizabeth Taylor and her then husband Mike Todd. She’s poised, witty, maddeningly beautiful and genuine. At one point during the interview, Edward Murrow asks Taylor the following question:
“Are you going to continue making movies or just be a housewife.”
Elizabeth Taylor thoughtfully replies:
“I couldn’t really care less about making movies to tell you the truth. I consider it much more important to be a good woman than a great actress.”
