Elizabeth Taylor Has Died

the eyes have it
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.

National Velvet, one of the first films I saw as a child. Taylor escaped death several times, but to paraphrase John 10:10, she lived life abundantly.

Yes, it's a great shame. As I mentioned on Katy's blog, when my wife was younger she bore an uncanny resemblance to Elizabeth Taylor in her prime. Although Rusty is a generation younger than Liz, both were born under the sign of Pisces.

Best wishes from Simon
