Silver gelatin print by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, titled "At Home with Elizabeh Taylor". Printed caption on verso reads: "Elizabeth Taylor, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's young actress finds her home life, like her screen life, filed with animals. The twelve-year old keeps two horsed [sic], three dogs, two cats, a chipmunk and assorted mice, forgs, and lizards as pets at her home. In M-G-M's 'National Velvet,' she portrays the girl who rides her beloved horse to victory in England's Grand National Steeplechase. In her forthcoming film, she stars with Lassie, the collie wonder dog. Like all schoolgirls, Elizabeth has her homework. She attends school at the studio, and studies on the set when making a picture, but still has her lessons to study at night".

MGM still number 7524.
