My thought on today

Many remember her as a serial bride, creator of the Diamonds fragrance, star of “Cleopatra” and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” To me, though, she’ll always be Martha, the meaner, boozier half of the spitefully witty, warring duo that cement “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” into place as one of my all-time favorite films. Rest in peace, Elizabeth. 

All the single men in the afterlife better lock their doors.

  1. RIP Elizabeth Taylor.
    She was one of the best actresses in history, here performance in “Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf” is unforgettable. Simply one of the best performance put to film.

  2. I haven’t seen many of her films (Woolf being one) but I look forward to the TCM marathon in April.

  3. What a beautiful actress she was. We cant forget her for a long time.

  4. Man shes so scary in this. She was so beautiful. not in this, obviously!

    • @ Jack — Agreed. I almost don’t want to see some of her earlier films because she’ll always be the cackling Martha to me.

      @ Ross — She was beautiful in a “Joan of Arc in battle” kind of way. Sometimes when people ask me what my favorite war movie is, I say “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” If they don’t get the joke, I know they haven’t seen the movie.
