The Accidental Feminist is a fascinating look at the behind the scenes drama of Elizabeth Taylor’s film career. Author M. G. Lord, USC professor and author of Forever Barbie reveals many little known facts about Elizabeth that give us a true picture of both her personal and on screen life. The legendary actress lived her life defiantly in public - undermining postwar reactionary sex roles; helping directors thwart the Hollywood Production Code, which restricted film content from 1934 to 1967; and as a member of the vanguard of fund-raising for AIDS research in the 1980s, which was entirely consistent with her championing the right of people to love whomever they love, regardless of gender. Yet her powerful feminist impact was hidden in plain sight. Daring in conception, and drawing upon unpublished letters and scripts as well as interviews with Kate Burton, Gore Vidal, Robert Forster, Austin Pendleton, Kevin McCarthy, Liz Smith, and others, The Accidental Feminist will surprise Taylor and film fans alike with its originality - and add a startling dimension to the star's enduring mystique. This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Mission Viejo Library and will be held on Thursday, March 8th at 7:00 pm in the City Hall Council Chamber, 200 Civic Center, Mission Viejo.
