I personally think the phrase "movie star" was coined with Elizabeth Taylor in mind.  

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is probably my favorite movie from the 1950s.  And I'm not even a huge Tennessee Williams fan.  But, I've seen it a dozen times and will likely see it a dozen more at least, in large part to the luminescence of its stars.  

 Good grief, can you imagine standing in a room next to these two? 

Although I've been expecting the  news of her passing, it was still very sad.  Such a great beauty.

Really, was there ever anyone as beautiful??  And such a wonderful philanthropist too. 

 A life well lived.  Rest in Peace.

    Bila je prelijepa!!!!

  2. I know, The Husband told me yesterday morning "Liz Tayler died!" and for some reason we were both surprised... despite the fact that she was ill for years and years and clearly at some point she was going to go (um, since she's not immortal or anything). I don't know why we were so surprised, except that she sort of IS immortal, right? It's just sort of hard to imagine her not being around forever. I guess in a way she will be.


I love hearing from you, and thank you in advance for reading and commenting! &
