Elizabeth Taylor is “resting comfortably” in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, said her doctor, Dr. Patrick Rhoten. The film legend, 67, fell in her Bel Air mansion Thursday night, suffering a compression fracture of her 12th thoracic vertebra. She is expected to remain in Cedars for at least a week. A spokesman for the hospital said her condition had not changed significantly since she was brought in. Liz has a history of back ailments, which are said to be the result of her having fallen off a horse while making the movie “National Velvet” in 1944.
