With her still shocking death earlier this month, the proclamations of appreciation for the life and career of one Elizabeth Taylor are still rolling in.
The Film Society Of Lincoln Center has announced that they will be hosting a new film series, entitled Elizabeth: The Golden Age. Screening at the Walter Reade Theater from May 20-22, this will be the first retrospective of the icon’s work in NY, since her death. It will also go hand-in-hand with a photo exhibit, which will be on display from May 20-June 9, thanks to the FSLC, Kobal Collection and BigEyeGallery.com.
Tickets will be going on sale on May 5, and the series will feature such films as Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf and A Place In The Sun. Also screening will be Julia Misbehaves, a rare film which also happens to features the actress’ first on-screen kiss, and a special screening of the iconic Cleopatra, from a 70mm print.
Personally, while I have seen many of her films, I’m not nearly as familiar with her filmography as I frankly should be, so hopefully this won’t be the only retrospective held in the wake of her passing.
