Dame Elizabeth Taylor died on March 23rd. It was a very sad day for the world. The Academy Award and Golden Globe winner was known for her eight marriages to seven different men, her dazzling jewelry and charity work.
When I was a young kid, I remember loving her movies. At that time, I wasn’t a big fan of really long movies, but the movie “Giant,” was combined into two VHS tapes — I watched that movie over and over. After that, I was hooked as an Elizabeth Taylor fan. From “National Velvet,” “Father of the Bride,” “A Place in the Sun,” “Butterfield 8,” “Cleopatra,” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf,” and last, but certainly not least and my personal favorite, “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” she worked her heart out on every movie she made.
As a writer, I think that Elizabeth Taylor is the epitome of what a classic heroine should be. They should have it all – brains, charm, radiance, sexuality, just to name a few, just like the legendary Elizabeth.
If you haven’t seen anything by Elizabeth Taylor, I challenge you to watch her movies and see the world is now missing. If you have seen her movies, watch them again and fall in love all over again…
