Episode 203: Elizabeth Taylor, Part Two

Posted 1 May 2022 by

We begin with the marriage of Elizabeth to Mike Todd. Here she is with her children, Mike, and a honkin’ big diamond in 1957. Library of Congress

From the tragic death of husband number three, Mike Todd, through her two marriages to Richard Burton, and Elizabeth’s first stay at the Betty Ford Center, we look at Elizbeth’s life of wild ups, crazy downs, and a whole lot of living in between.

Next time you’re in Kansas City…you might see the Grahams there!

 

Every town has a Peanut. (We promise, this makes sense if you listen to the episode.)

 

And we still aren’t done! Elizabeth lived a big life…this is going to take three episodes.
