Photo of Elizabeth Taylor’s Acapulco Wedding to Be Auctioned



MEXICO CITY – A photograph of actress Elizabeth Taylor’s wedding in Acapulco to Michael Todd will be auctioned off this week, Morton Subastas announced on Tuesday.

The image, showing Taylor and her third husband, Todd, beside Mexican actor and comedian Mario Moreno (“Cantinflas”) is part of a group of 145 photos that will be put up for auction in Morton’s first photographic auction in its 30 years in operation, the firm said in a bulletin.

The photos include historic images of events and personalities.

Todd, a movie producer, was the third of Taylor’s seven husbands and died a year after the 1957 wedding in a plane accident.

“Taylor said that he, her jewelry and Richard Burton were the loves of her life,” the auction house said.

In addition to the image of the iconic actress, who died in 2011, there are photos of Britain’s Princes Diana taken shortly before she died in a 1997 traffic accident.

Other photos in the group are of a social nature, such as one of the Catholic faithful viewing Pope John Paul II during his first visit to Mexico in 1979, an image taken by Pedro Valtierra.

Also, there are photos of Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa and photographer Lola Alvarez Bravo, a key figure in the post-revolution Mexican renaissance of the 1930s.

In the international area, images by photographers such as Vida Yovanovich, Adam Wiseman and Enrique Bostelmann are also included in the selection of photos to be auctioned.
