(Original Caption) 10/17/1957-New York, New York- Actress Elizabeth Taylor stands on a specially built platform to cut up this 17-foot-tall, 1,000-pound cake with television blue icing at the gala party given to her by her husband, Mike Todd, in Madison Square Garden. The one candle represents the first anniversary of the premiere of the movie “Around the World in 80 Days,” made by Todd. Guests were flown in from as far away as Europe and Australia to swell the numbers at the party to 18,000. The tab for the party was covered by the fee for the 90-minute television broadcast.
