After almost 2 weeks since her death, Elizabeth Taylor returns to public attention in a way that she would have frowned while being alive. A picture in which the actress appears in total state of undress was leaked over the Internet, quickly making headlines on social networks and spreading rememberings.
The photograph was taken in 1956 by actress longlife friend, Roddy McDowall, when Elizabeth Taylor was 24-year-old.
She accepted the photoshoot as a present for her 3rd spouse, producer Mike Todd. Mr.Todd died in an aircraft incident over New Mexico just 13 months after he married Elizabeth and the actress gave the picture to her personal cosmetician, Penny Taylor, who sold it to collector Jim Shaunis in 1980.
Following a long period the photo has been displayed in his house, the collector decided to post it on the Internet after Mrs. Taylor’s death on 23 March 2011.
