DAME Elizabeth Taylor has become one of the first people to see the much-anticipated Michael Jackson concert rehearsal movie THIS IS IT - she sat through a screening of the film at the weekend (17-18Oct09).
The movie veteran, who was one of the King of Pop's closest friends, hosted a private screening of the film at MGM studios in Hollywood.
Her guests included her companion Jason Winters and Marlon Brando's son Miko, who was Jackson's former assistant, according to U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight.
Taylor also invited the King of Pop's entire staff to the screening.
She was overheard saying, "The film was pure genius," as she led an standing ovation at the end of the film.
On Saturday (17Oct09), Taylor spent much of the day with Jackson's three children on a tour of Universal Studio's backlot.
