PARIS — Elizabeth Taylor is to receive France's highest cultural distinction for her movie career of more than 30 years, government officials said.

The 53-year-old British-born actress will be named commander of arts and letters, along with U.S. composer Carmine Coppola, by Culture Minister Jack Lang at an official ceremony in Paris on Thursday.

Coppola, father of film director and producer Francis Coppola, will conduct the 62-man Republican Guard orchestra at the French premiere performance of Abel Gance's silent film classic "Napoleon" later this month.
