C4 show will document the late star’s life through her jewels.
Channel 4 has made a feature-length documentary about the late Elizabeth Taylor’s love of jewellery which is due to air in spring.
The documentary will explore the Hollywood star’s life by taking viewers through the history of her jewellery collection, which at her death was valued at more than £100 million and has now been auctioned off.
The working title of the documentary is Elizabeth Taylor: The Auction and it will feature interviews with important figures in the star’s life, including fellow actors Joan Collins, Robert Hardy, Liza Minnelli and Mickey Rooney, plus some people who have never before been filmed speaking about their relationship with Taylor.
It has also captured the excitement of the auctions of Taylor’s jewellery at Christies with the camera grew granted special access at the auction house. The crew are similarly invited into the houses of Bulgari, Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels – some of Taylor’s favourite jewellery designers.
The film has been created by Silver River production company.
