Elizabeth Taylor's tempestuous love affair

A playful "60 Minutes" appearance by Taylor (wearing the biggest diamond you've ever seen) and husband Richard Burton in 1970

One the great Hollywood actresses has died, and for many people, Elizabeth Taylor's most memorable role was her real-life love affair with Richard Burton. Two of Taylor's eight marriages were with Burton, and theirs was a famously tempestuous relationship.

In 1970, just after their sixth wedding anniversary, the couple invited Charles Collingwood and "60 Minutes" to the home of Taylor's mother in Bel Air, Calif., where the cat-and-dog couple affectionately quarreled before our cameras.
