Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011) is an American icon for all time, one of the last of the true grand dames until her unfortunate demise, and an enduring cinematic legend despite all that nonsense in the 1980s.

Which come to think of it is a pretty good description of Cadillac, which has lately come back round to being a truly stylish icon of American motoring.

So what better than a photo of Liz behind the wheel of a Caddy in 1954, looking every inch the American movie star, in her big shiny American car?

Goddamn, it feels like the Fourth of July…
