MORE VIOLET EYES --Elizabeth Taylor and Columbia Pictures TV are in the final stages of negotiations that would bring La Liz to TV each week, a source said.
"Elizabeth Taylor's Love Stories," a 13-part anthology series--with Taylor playing a role in five or six episodes, while introducing and narrating the rest--could very well be on the home screen next spring. Don't you just love the proposed title?
PERMANENT KUDOS--The Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles inaugurates its Maynard Toll Luncheon on Oct. 23--which annually will honor lawyers in public service. It will do it by honoring Toll himself. A partner for 40 years in O'Melveny & Myers, Toll is a local legend, a living example of public service--known well in downtown power circles, a former head of his firm's tax department, whose bio covers dozens of philanthrophic organizations. His service record includes: president of the American Bar Foundation, president of the National Legal Aid and Defenders, president of the L.A. County Bar, trustee of the County Museum of Art, president of the L.A. City Board of Education, member of the Council on Foundations, an organizer of United Way, and president of Town Hall. Co-chairs for the lunch are former Asst. Secretary of State Warren Christopher, County Museum of Art Board Chairman Camilla Frost, former Education Secretary Shirley Hufstedler, and Edward Carter and Philip Hawley of Carter Hawley Hale. Barbara Y. Johnson, president of the L.A. Legal Aid Foundation board of directors, gets the credit for putting it all together.
