Taylor love letters for sale

A gushing letter in which 17-year-old Elizabeth Taylor tells her first fiance that she will "never love anyone else - period" is among more than 60 being put up for auction.

RR Auction in Amherst, New Hampshire, US, bought the letters two years ago from William Pawley, who was engaged to Taylor for less than a year in 1949.

Officials estimated the unpublished love letters were worth about 25,000 dollars before the actress' death last week and expect them now to fetch two or three times that at the online auction in May.

Liz did not only write about what she described as her perfect, complete and mature love for Mr Pawley.

The starlet also described studio life, including the filming of A Place In The Sun.

Dame Elizabeth died last Wednesday at the age of 79.
