It seems a little insane not to acknowledge the passing of the legendary Elizabeth Taylor. Ooh La La Du Jour loves loves loves the Golden Age of Hollywood and who was that era's biggest star but the violet-eyed  beauty. The odd thing is, recently, I've been catching up on a lot of Taylor's classic films via TCM...you know, movies I should have seen but just haven't gotten around to. Films like Butterfield 8, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Suddenly Last Summer. I've also re-watched her in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Father of the Bride and Giant. It's so easy to get caught up in the tabloid 'Liz', especially if you grew up during a time when she was ever-so-slightly past her prime...but when you watch her, in some of her most famous roles ever, you remember just exactly why she was the star among stars :)
