Paying their respects: As word spread Wednesday of the death of Elizabeth Taylor, a shrine at the site of her Hollywood Walk of Fame star started to form.
A star gives birth: In this 1957 photo, Taylor holds her newborn daughter, Elizabeth Frances, while husband Mike Todd and her sons Christopher, right, and Michael look on. They also are the sons of Michael Wilding, her previous husband.
Maggie the Cat: Taylor is shown in the film version of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" with Paul Newman.
Men in her life: Above with husband Richard Burton. At right, with good friend Michael Jackson.
Photo gallery: Clockwise from left, in Cleopatra; in "Butterfield 8," for which she won an Oscar; and with young AIDS patients and Captain Planet in Children's Hospital in Los Angeles. She was the voice of Donna in the animated adventure series. The character's teenage son tests positive for HIV.
