IN MEMORIAM: Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011)



I loved Liz Taylor. Not because she was beautiful, not because she was a tabloid temptress, but because she was a damn fine actress. Since the day that she passed people seem to have forgotten that the reason she was in our lives in the first place was because she was an actress. She entertained us and made us feel something with every role she encapsulated. I just wanted to take a moment and remember some of her most memorable roles, not to mention some great sets she helped bring to life. She will be missed.

    Thank you for the memories. I also am a big Taylor fan, not only for her movies but for her spirit.
