Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011)

Where do you even begin when talking about someone like Elizabeth Taylor?  Everybody will remember her for something different: her movies, her glamour, her perfumes, the numerous marriages, the diamonds, her humanitarian work.  No matter what you best remember her for, there’s no denying that she was a completely unforgettable woman.  She was one of the last true legends of classic Hollywood and was truly a one of a kind lady.  One thing’s for sure: the world just got a lot less glamorous.  I think Paul Newman gave the best tribute to Elizabeth that I’ve ever seen:

TCM will be paying tribute on Sunday, April 10th, 2011 with 24 hours of her movies:

And now, on a lighter note, a couple of my favorite funny pictures of Elizabeth and her short but sweet appearance on one of my favorite episodes of The Simpsons:



  1. Those photos are GREAT! Liz washing the dog is so wonderfully full of vim and vitality. But, oh… that Suddenly Last Summer shot is particularly hilarious— poor Monty in the back looks like he is seriously being strangled!!
