Liza Todd is the daughter of movie superstar Elizabeth Taylor and the late theatrical impresario/movie producer Mike Todd, their only child and the last child born to Taylor.

Born on August 6, 1957, Elizabeth Frances Todd never knew her father, who died in a plane crash on March 22, 1958. Liza Todd's stepfathers were the pop singer Eddie Fisher, the movie actor Richard Burton, U.S. Senator John Warner and Larry Fortensky. Her "real" father, in the sense of the closeness the two shared, was her second stepdad, Richard Burton, who adopted her.

Playhouse 90 was an American television anthology drama series that aired on CBS from 1956 to 1960 for a total of 133 episodes. The show was produced at CBS Television City in Los Angeles, California. Since live anthology drama series of the mid-1950s usually were hour-long shows, the title highlighted the network's intention to present something unusual: a weekly series of hour-and-a-half-long dramas rather than 60-minute plays.

What's My Line? is a panel game show that originally ran in the United States on the CBS Television Network from 1950 to 1967, with a dozen international versions and subsequent U.S. revivals.

It is the longest-running U.S. primetime network television game-show. Moderated by John Charles Daly and with regular panelists Dorothy Kilgallen, Arlene Francis, and Bennett Cerf, What's My Line? won three Emmy Awards for "Best Quiz or Audience Participation Show" in 1952, 1953, and 1958 and the Golden Globe for Best TV Show in 1962.
