In the wake of Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor’s death, TCM is celebrating the woman’s work with a 24-hour tribute set to air next month. This includes airing Butterfield 8 and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, both of which earner her Oscars.
Just looking at this list of movies should be enough to give anyone a fair indication of Taylor’s contribution to classic cinema. Also on the list is the original Father of the Bride, as well as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Lassie Come Home and National Velvet. Below is the full schedule of movies that will air on TCM starting April 10th.
