Sigh. I've still never seen Cleopatra...I keep waiting for it to come on TCM but I guess it's too long ;)
Guess I'll have to be satisfied with Cat on a Hot Tin Roof tonight.

truly a remarkable woman...the last of her kind....

MISCH said...

RocketQueen...I bet they play Cleopatra on the weekend...keep a lookout for it.....it's glorious....

RocketQueen said...

@MISCH - you're so right! When Tony Curtis died last year, I finally got to see all his movies that I'd missed :) Going to set my DVR to record all the ones I missed with Liz!

The Black Cat said...

She sure was in some with very interesting plots.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I think she got more beautiful with age. Toward the middle of that montage when she got out of early youth and into more middle age, there was a certain character and intelligence that blended with her beauty to make her truly exquisite.

I am so sad today. I had no idea I'd be affected like this when Elizabeth passed.

p.s. Sammy Davis, Jr., was really a great crooner. Haven't heard him in years.

Ice Angel said...

Never a more beautiful woman in the world. One of a kind.

chopchop said...

Confession: I've never seen a Liz Taylor movie. o_O

I do think she's fabulous, though.

skeeball said...

Chop~first one you should see is "A Place in the Sun" Liz is jaw droppingly stunningly beautiful in that movie. And the story is great, too.

shakey said...

Holy shit - she died?!? When???

I remember my Dad took me to a horror movie she did in the 70s. Scared the crap out of me, but it didn't stop me from being a fan.

Cleopatra really is a great film.

Who's afraid of Virginia Wolfe was her favorite.

RocketQueen said...

@chopchop - and you must see Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. SO GOOD.

Boriqua said...

Hollywood doesn't make stars like this anymore. RIP, Liz.

Time for a movie marathon.

califblondy said...

Chopchop, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof and Giant are great, great movies. Of course, Elizabeth was beyond gorgeous, but the supporting casts and storylines are very good too.

There will never be another...

skeeball said...

Another great Liz movie that is not will known is "Conspirator" from 1949 It is far fetched but Liz is great in it.

Robert Taylor plays her husband

RocketQueen said...

Thanks skeeball - never heard of that one - will keep a look out!

I read Furious Love last summer and went back and watched a lot of the movies I had never seen. My mom introduced me to old movies when I was little and I loved Father of the Bride then and still have to watch it when it comes on now. But yes, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Who's Afraid of Virgina Wolfe are excellent too.

Doug Kenney said...

Enough already. Elizabeth Taylor was a hosebag garbage slut who became an drunk and a drug addict who befriended pedophiles. She's been repulsive my entire life, and now she's fucking dead. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

califblondy said...

I have to be in the mood for Virginia Wolfe since it's so dark, but I think that was her best acting ever.

Paisley said...

I'll add National Velvet to the recommendation list. Good picture for the whole family.

amoteafloat said...

Her performance of Martha in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf is my favorite ever by an actress. It's hard to watch, but it's just so exquisitely good.

R.I.P., Dame Liz. I hope you're frolicking on a yacht with Richard somewhere.

Robert said...

Liz said the performance she gave as Martha was the best acting she'd ever done, and her favorite role; this just goes to show that a great movie may not always be enjoyable to watch.

Green Of Eye, Sharp Of Claw said...

@Doug: But how do you really feel about her?

Sunnyhorse said...

@Doug. You are obviously a vile human being (and I use the term loosely here). Please, just go away.

lutefisk said...

I ran to the library today and grabbed Giant. There is no one who will ever compare to her. RIP Elizabeth Taylor.

MISCH said...
