Typed Docuement Signed: "Elizabeth Taylor", 1p, 8½x11. Culver City, California, 1951 July 5. Letter on Loew's Incorporated Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures stationery to Taylor who has signed in the lower left under the words: "The above payment received this/27th day of November 1951." In full: "We hand you herewith our check in the sum of One Hundred Twenty-seven and 16/100 Dollars ($127.16) (less proper deductions) being the amount payable to you from the commercial tie-up with Cinderella Hat Company, covering the period from March 1, 1951, to May 31, 1951." Taylor (1932-2011) had already appeared in popular films such as Lassie Come Home (1943), National Velvet (1944), Life With Father (1947), Little Women (1949) and Father of the Bride (1950) and had already divorced her first husband, Nick Hilton (1950). Already a striking beauty by age ten, violet-eyed, London-born child star Elizabeth Taylor, who made her film debut in 1942, grew up to play sizzling adult roles on screen. Married to Nick Hilton, Michael Wilding, Mike Todd, Eddie Fisher, Richard Burton (twice), John Warner and Larry Fortensky, Taylor won Academy Awards for Best Actress for Butterfield 8 (1960) and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966). The first actress to earn $1 million for a motion picture (Cleopatra, 1963), Taylor was also nominated for Best Actress Oscars in 1957 (Raintree County), 1958 (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) and 1959 (Suddenly, Last Summer). Named a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II on December 31, 1999, Taylor was also a John F. Kennedy Center Honoree in 2002. Despite debilitating health problems, she is also known for her tireless efforts to raise funds for AIDS charities. Light diagonal folds at lower right corner. Staple holes and lightly creased at upper left corner. Two file holes at upper blank margin. Overall, fine condition.
