"They are goddesses--women whose great charm and beauty inspires adoration. Rare candid footage, film clips, and intimate interviews with friends and colleagues illuminate the real women behind the manufactured façade. Behind-the-scenes footage and rare home movies offer glimpses into their private lives which are sometimes anything but glamorous--revealing the pain and loneliness of life lived in the spotlight.
MARILYN MONROE: She was, quite simply, the most captivating star in Hollywood history. Yet this celebrated icon was a carefully crafted character, a show-biz concoction that could never quite hide the real-life vulnerability of a thrown-away child desperate for love and intimacy.
ELIZABETH TAYLOR: She is the very definition of "star," a prodigious talent and exquisite beauty who has long attracted as much attention away from the screen as in front of it. After six decades in the public eye, she remains as much of an icon as ever.
SOPHIA LOREN: Creating an earthy new sexuality for the post-World War II world, she became Italy's most beloved export. Loren has enjoyed a storybook career, rising from a dirt-poor childhood to become one of the most celebrated and admired of actresses.
ANGELINA JOLIE: She's beautiful, eccentric, highly intelligent and a goddess for modern times. Her fame on the screen has been equaled by the publicity surrounding her marriage to mutual mega-star Brad Pitt, while her humanitarian efforts, famously serving as a U.N. goodwill ambassador since 2001, focus the spotlight world hunger, AIDS and the needs of children.
