This film covers the life of actress Elizabeth Taylor from her early years until her later years. It is about how Elizabeth's Taylor's father knew how beautiful she was and sought to get her into modeling or show business. Well, he did win as she was cast in the lead role of National Velvet. Later she starred in many films over the 1950's through the 1980's. She had a screen presence unlike any other of her time and was nominated and won many awards in the industry.
Her marriages to famous men also was interesting.
At 8 p.m. last night in New York, Broadway theaters dimmed their lights for one minute to honor actress Elizabeth Taylor. 8 p.m. is typically curtain call time on Broadway.
Besides her big screen acting career, Taylor received a Tony Award for her acting in the Broadway play “The Little Foxes.” She also produced and starred in Noel Coward’s “Private Lives” alongside her then-husband Richard Burton.
Before he left MSNBC, commentator Keith Olbermann had a segment called "Worst Person in the World," where he took politicans and average citizens to task for doing what he felt were genuinely horrible things.
While we're no political pundits, we'd like to borrow Olbermann's editorial gimmick, and hand a "Worst People in the World" to organizers from the Westboro Baptist Church, who promised today to protest at Elizabeth Taylor's funeral, and tweeted a series of truly vile messages about Taylor.
Elizabeth Taylor, now that was a woman. Even in death, she went out in style, requesting to be delivered to her funeral a fashionable 15 minutes late.
Taylor, died of congestive heart failure at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Wednesday, and by Thursday afternoon, she had been buried in the Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California near celebrities like Michael Jackson and Clark Gable.
