Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor 1932-2011

Hi Bryan Here…

Possibly one of the greatest actresses of a generation and possibly of all time.  She is known as the greatest actress of Hollywood’s Golden Age Era.  You know her as Liz Taylor.  Taylor passed away this past Wednesday die to congestive heart failure.

Taylor started her acting career at age ten and continued a life of acting, charity, husbands, a sex symbol, and much much more up until about ten years ago.

From 1957 thru 1959, Taylor was nominated for Best Actress three years in a row for her roles in Raintree Country, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, and Suddenly, Last Summer.  It was not until her role in the film, Butterfield 8 that she won the Best Actress award.  Six years later, Liz won the Best Actress Award for her role in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf”?  Let us not forget her iconic roles in “Cleopatra” and “Giant”.

Liz won the Humanitarian Award in 1991 for her fight against AIDS.  She was involved with raising over $100 million dollars to fight the disease.

She also had a love for fashion.  She designed her own jewelry, clothing, perfume, and art.  Her fashion designs have been sold and cherished around the world.

She was a true class act.  A sex symbol. An award winning actress.  A philanthropist.  A mother.  A wife.  A grandmother. A friend.

She will be missed.

Hopefully Liz and Michael Jackson are holding hands somewhere in the nether world making musicals together.

Movie Quotes

[Translating a speech a German General is giving to his men after they all surrendered]
Joseph Liebgott:
Men, it's been a long war, it's been a tough war. You've fought bravely, proudly for your country. You're a special group. You've found in one another a bond, that exists only in combat, among brothers. You've shared foxholes, held each other in dire moments. You've seen death and suffered together. I'm proud to have served with each and every one of you. You all deserve long and happy lives in peace.
