lot description

This photograph of amfAR’s Founding International Chairman, the late Dame Elizabeth Taylor, beautifully captures her defiant spirit and sense of humour. The image is an outtake from a campaign to promote her 2001 TV film These Old Broads, co-starring Shirley MacLaine, Debbie Reynolds and Joan Collins. During the photo shoot, Shirley was jokingly flipping the bird to Liz, who in turn shot back at Shirley with this double bird.

Shipping costs and all applicable taxes are the responsibility of the successful bidder.
