Gorgeous portrait—Elizabeth Taylor

Classic Elizabeth Taylor. Wasn't she the loveliest film ingĂ©nue? In those early roles, after National Velvet and Jane Eyre of course, she often played a vixen or a sex siren, but I loved that she had that underlying innocence that always surfaced in each of her characters. Okay, maybe not in Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?where surely she could rip your jugular vein out with a venomous look. Liz was a dark-haired goddess with sizzling violet eyes. She was voluptuous, scandalous, and absolutely amorous. During her long career on the silver screen, she made over 50 films, of which I've seen about half. Each time I watched her I fall in love with her all over again. Some of my favorite of the films she's starred in are A Place in the Sun, Elephant Walk, Rhapsody, The Taming of the Shrew, Little Women, Butterfield 8, Suddenly Last Summer, and Boom!, She won two Oscars for Best Actress in two other favorite films: as Maggie, a sultry southern belle in Cat On A Hot Tin Roofand as Martha, a boozy and verbally abusive wife in Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? In this role she starred along with her longtime love Richard BurtonLiz and Dick, what passion! And of course I can't forget Cleopatra, in which she was luscious and powerful all at once...and all those gorgeous costume changes! Yup, Liz was a classic.
