I was preparing my blog post this morning when I was floored by the news that Elizabeth Taylor had passed away at the age of 79, reportedly of congestive heart failure. Not only was she one of the most beautiful women in the world, but she was a humanitarian, dedicated to the cause of finding a cure for AIDS. As she is undeniably one of the most romantic figures to come out of Hollywood in generations, I dedicate this post to the memory of the incomparable Elizabeth Taylor.
In a bit of irony, this tribute was narrated by Paul Newman, with whom she starred in Cat On a Hot Tin Roof, and originally aired on the Turner Classic Movies channel.
Rest in Peace, sweet lady. You will be missed.
