Elizabeth Taylor  Michael Todd Michael Todd breezed into Elizabeth Taylor's life on June 23, 1956....and sadly breezed out just as quickly on March 22, 1958. But during their time together, they accumulated a lifetime worth of memories. They traveled all over the world promoting the Mike Todd spectacularly produced Oscar winning, AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS, as well as promoting Elizabeth's movie epics, GIANT and RAINTREE COUNTRY. They married in Mexico in February 1957, days after Elizabeth obtained her divorce from second husband, Michael Wilding. Mike's death devastated Elizabeth to the point of propelling her into a state of self destruction when she did not care if she lived or died. In fact, she had to come close to death (herself) before appreciating living again. Mike and Elizabeth's love story is a special one...and their time together was so very short but so very potent. Elizabeth, today, claims he was one of the great loves of her life ...

From everything I've ever read, her feelings for Mike Todd went much deeper than any of her other relationships.

Some interesting trivia about Todd:
On March 22, 1958, his private plane, Lucky Liz, crashed near Grants, New Mexico. The plane, which was a Lockheed Lodestar, was downed by engine failure while being operated grossly overweight at the limit of its altitude capability, and the crash killed all four on board. Todd, who was the son of a Rabbi, is buried in Chicago at Beth Aaron Cemetery. In his autobiography, Todd's best friend. Eddie Fisher, stated that no fragments of Todd had been found, and that his coffin contained only his ring.

Fisher became Elizabeth Taylor's next husband a little over a year later.
