TIFF Cinematheque Presents: Liz & Marilyn: Black and White in Colour

Liz and Merilyn

When you start thinking of big stars of the Golden Era, you perhaps start thinking of Audrey Hepburn, Vivien Leigh, Bette Davies, Ingrid Bergman and many others who brighten the silver screen, not only with their beautiful looks, but also with their gift to transform themselves into any character they wished. But there were only two actresses whose attention was drawn by Andy Warhol, who admired them for their unorthodox, but meantime, dazzling beauty. One woman was blonde, while the other had dark, black hair. One had blue eyes, while the other battled everyone with her violet eyes. And those two women, two gifted actress who I’m talking about are Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe, whose films you’re getting a chance to see once again, if not for the first time on the big screen as part of Liz & Marilyn: Black and White in Colour series, proudly presented by TIFF Cinematheque. And the unforgettable journey to the world of Liz and Marilyn that’s starting on November 7, 2015 and will continue till January 7th, to ensure that your winter won’t be that cold, and you’re safe and warm with TIFF Bell Light Box.
