Leatrice Joy Gilbert (1924-2015)

  1. Elizabeth Taylor,National Velvet, 1944.    John Gilbert and Leslie Howard’s  daughters were among the numerous  potential Velvet Browns.  Including Pat Arno, Alix De Kauffman, Katharine Hepburn, Patsy Lee Parsons, Leslie Ruth (Howard), Gene Tierney and future UK politician Baroness Shirley Williams.   None matched Taylor’s sheer determination. When told she was too short in her tested (directed by  Fred Zinnemann!), Liz promised to put on three inches before shooting And she did!  A star is born, agreed the critics. In all, Leatrice  made nine movies - 80 less than her mother, Leatrice Joy.
