What a wonderful idea!
TCM announced that it will be running a 24 hour Elizabeth Taylor movie marathon in tribute to the late actress's prolific and fabulous career!
Not only that, but BIO has announced that it will be showing a two hour intimate special on her life!
The TCM tribute will be showing on April 10th, starting at 6 am, and will include both of her Oscar award-winning roles, Butterfield 8 at 8 p.m. and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at 10 pm (eastern).
The full schedule can be seen after the jump.
Liz, we're all going to miss you! This is a perfect way for us to remember how amazing your life had been.
