- Feature-length documentary following actress Elizabeth Taylor's extraordinary life story through some of her most precious possessions, which feature in auctions in New York and London. With access to Christie's auction house, this film brings to life the excitement at the auctions as millions of pounds are bid for the 'Crown Jewels of Hollywood', some of which sell for 50 times their pre-sale estimates. Each item of jewellery, art and haute couture provides a springboard into a key period of Taylor's life. Interviews with the people central to Taylor's life bring into focus what motivated her, her obsession with diamonds, and the tumultuous lifestyle she had on and off-screen. Interviewees include Joan Collins, Liza Minnelli and Mickey Rooney, and also her favourite jewellery and fashion designers.
