Former Elizabeth Taylor double reflects on career

FLANDERS - Phyllis Shelton worked as Elizabeth Taylor's double in many of her early films, including "Cleopatra."

Shelton showed News 12 New Jersey pictures of herself and Taylor side-by-side where the resemblance is striking.

Shelton says there were many times when people would ask her for Taylor's autograph. Shelton went on to appear in television shows and worked as a print model.

Shelton owns a real estate business now, and until Elizabeth Taylor died, it had been years since she'd spoken about her early career as Taylor's double.
