Summary: former child actress considered as a legendary British-born glamour queen of American movie stardom whose achievements on film were often overshadowed by her beauty and real-life dramas who dazzled generations of moviegoers with her stunning looks, onscreen passion in more than 50 films, and tumultuous offscreen love affairs that culminated in eight marriages, two of them with Welsh actor Richard Burton (d. 1984), but who had suffered more than 70 illnesses, injuries, and accidents over the years requiring hospitalization, including an appendectomy, an emergency tracheotomy, a punctured esophagus, a hysterectomy, dysentery, an ulcerated eye, smashed spinal discs, phlebitis, skin cancer, and hip replacements, and who had a benign brain tumor removed in 1997.
