Sad news. Elizabeth Taylor, major Hollyood star, has died, at the age of 79. Taylor was perhaps best known for her roles in National Velvet, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, and Cleopatra, and for her famous marriage bed, which saw her severally wedded to co-star Richard Burton. In later years, Taylor was associated with good causes and for lost causes, like befriending Michael Jackson. Her beautiful eyes and voluptuous figure made her world-famous, and she stayed that way, until the end, though she starred in few if any quality pictures after the early 70s. It feels like the end of an era.
