Your film memories of the late Liz Taylor

I don't usually note the passing of Hollywood stars on this blog.

But with the death of Elizabeth Taylor this morning, I became curious about the range of images that this news might be bringing up in readers.

With a lifetime of her movie moments to choose from, what image came to your mind when you heard the news?

For me, the first part that popped into my brain wasn't her showier roles but Taylor's charming performance as the daughter in the original "Father of the Bride." I'm sure that won't be the clip we see in the "In Memoriam" sequence at the Academy Awards, but it's the one that brought a smile to me.

What about you?

And do you have any memories of seeing her films here in central Indiana?

  • Ms. Taylor a real part of our lives
    She was truly a part of everyday life in the 50s - 60s Ladies' circles. The films were only the beginning of her importance in dail life.

    My "mommies" adored her and adopted her, charmed by her from girlhood, delighted when she bloomed into a world-class beauty, and fine actress; broken-hearted when her first loves ended in divorce and widowhood and heartbreak for her; horrified when the "fix" for it all was the blowsy mess with Richard Burton; but at approving again over it all later, when he passed, and Liz found her ladyhood, and she herself stuck to quieter ways to take care of herself.
    I was a little girl and she was a Pisces like my Mommy, so I'd look at them both and decide Mommy was still prettier! But Liz was important. I hope they do not let her down for a proper goodbye now.
  • Elizabeth Taylor Roles
    on the lighter side, Elizabeth Taylor as Wilma's mother in "The Flintstones". Even at ther age then, she was hysterical! She will be missed...
  • Elizabeth Taylor
    I loved her as Velvet Brown in "National Velvet" and as Helena Cassidine on General Hospital.
  • Elizabeth Taylor
    For me it is Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Every woman who plays that role on stage or screen is trying to live up to that performance.

  1. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

  3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

  4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

  5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
