Turner Classic Movies (TCM) has planned a special tribute for Elizabeth Taylor who just died on March 23. The network will air 24-hour movie memorial movie marathon which is set to begin on Sunday, April 10 at 6 A.M. with her 1943 movie "Lassie Come Home".

"Butterfield 8" (1960) and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), which landed Oscar kudos for Taylor, will also be aired at 8 P.M. and 10 P.M. respectively. The special tribute will also feature the 79-year-old actress in spy drama "Conspirator" (1949) which marked her first adult role.

Other films included in the line-up are "Lassie Come Home" (1943), "National Velvet" (1944), "Father of the Bride" (1950), "Father's Little Dividend" (1951), historical epic "Ivanhoe" (1952), "Giant" (1956), "Raintree County" (1957), and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" (1958).

Beside TCM, BIO Channel and ABC also take part in remembering the late actress. The former will take a two-hour intimate look at the private life of Taylor on "BIO Remembers: Elizabeth Taylor" on Thursday, March 24 at 8 P.M. ET, while the latter airs a "Nightline" special edition with Barbara Walters in "Remembering Elizabeth Taylor" on Wednesday at 11:35 P.M.

Anchored by Cynthia McFadden, Terry Moran and Bill Weir, tonight's episode of "Nightline" will feature Walters, who had interviewed Taylor five times, sharing her experiences, and taking a look back at the past interviews and the 30-year relationship she had with the actress.

Elizabeth Taylor passed away in Los Angeles in the early hours of Wednesday morning after suffering from congestive heart failure. Since then, several celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Mariah Carey and Victoria Adams have paid tribute to her via Twitter.
