Elizabeth Taylor dies at 79; legendary actress

Elizabeth Taylor, the glamorous queen of American movie stardom, whose achievements as an actress were often overshadowed by her rapturous looks and real-life dramas, has died. She was 79.

Hospitalized six weeks ago for congestive heart failure, Taylor died early Wednesday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with her four children at her side, publicist Sally Morrison said.


FOR THE RECORD:
An earlier version of this article said Mickey Rooney played Elizabeth Taylor's trainer in "Lassie Come Home." Rooney did not star in that movie. He played Taylor's trainer in "National Velvet."
