    A very nice, long tribute from the NY Times.


    --------

    I think Kirk Douglas and to a lesser extent Micky Rooney are the only stars remaining from Hollywood's "Golden Age".

    She is one of the last big screen icons

    Notable movies -

    National Velvet, Little Women, A Place in the Sun, Ivanhoe, Giant, Raintree County, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Suddenly Last Summer, Butterfield 8, Cleopatra, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Taming of the Shrew.

    I loved Suddenly Last Summer and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Suddenly Last Summer was considered as 'pushing the envelope' back in 1959. Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf in 1966 with its foul language helped crack the motion picture code and replace it with ratings [G, PG, R, X] around 1968.

    Her death saddens me. One selfish reason is because my mother is only one year younger then Elizabeth. All the stars my mother grew up with are passing away and it's only a matter of time.

    RIP Elizabeth Taylor

    Such a beauty and a character.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    A legend....and one of the first celebrities to give a crap about people with HIV/AIDS.

    Love ya, Liz, and thank you!!!!

    In "Father of the Bride" (1950) & "A Place in the Sun" (1951), just so gorgeous! My fave performances: "Cat/Roof" (1958) & "Suddenly, Last Summer" (1959).

    So sad.

    I hear you. My own mother will be 74 1 month from tomorrow, my dad is 71, and I have a buddy/mentor who just turned 70 2 months ago yesterday. Luckily, all 3 of them are in good health physically and mentally, but nothing lasts forever.

    When asked by Barbara Walters in 1999 what she would like on her tombstone, she initially responded: "Here lies Liz; she lived" but then she went on to say that she hated to be called Liz and it should read: "Here lies Elizabeth; she hated to be called Liz; but she lived". She certainly did!

    Rest in peace, Dame Elizabeth Taylor. The title of one of the bios* on the lady was spot-on - she was The Last Star of the golden age.

    Wow, her movie credits are a bounty of classics! In film, her most vivid performances/scenes for me were in "CoaHTR" (nobody will ever match her Maggie); and two films in which she shared billing with her great (and equally as beautiful) friend Montgomery Clift -- "Suddenly Last Summer" and "A Place in the Sun".

    Even into the 1990s (remember this White Diamonds perfume campaign?), Liz was "star" beautiful.

    Perhaps just as impacting as her film legend, I'll forever the woman for her tireless work, mostly in the 1990s, in HIV/AIDS awareness and fundraising. Taylor was everywhere during this timespan, lovingly speaking about the friends she'd lost to the disease and the younger generation who needed more education and hope. And emphatically urging US/world leaders (and us all) that "the time is now" to raise money and awareness toward prevention ... and a cure. Liz raised millions of dollars for the cause, but more importantly gave the cause an emormous champion.

    *Well, it was from the hack author Kitty Kelley, and contained her usual falsehoods, but at least the title was appropriate.

    was so saddened to wake up to this news. Beefy said everything I wanted to say about her. Will plan a Liz Taylor movie marathon this weekend.
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    I honestly did the same thing just a couple of days ago. The photo of her w/an oxygen cannula in her nose just looked awful. She battled so many medical problems. May she rest in peace. She can be remember also for all the great work she did for AIDs causes.

    I loved her in "The Taming of the Shrew" which is one of my favorite movies. She was perfect.

    RIP Elizabeth
    Please take care of Michael in Heaven and say "Hi" to Richard!
