A Legend, Elizabeth Taylor dies at 79: Girl with the violet eyes

Today we lost a true legend. One of the most evocatively beautiful and Dionysian actresses of all time, and a passionate humanitarian. To say Elizabeth Taylor is one of my favorite people would sound contrived and pale inadequately to how much I truly love her. Dame Elizabeth was and always will be what dreams are made of.

I’m so glad that I covered her incredible performance in Butterfield 8 (1960) recently. Now in honor of her leaving us, I plan on covering many of the outstanding contributions she made. Some even obscure.

You’re with the angels now, violet eyed beauty, we will miss you terribly, but will keep the reels eternal.

With great sadness


Wonderful video tribute using Sammy Davis Jr.’s incredible song. When I Look In Your Eyes 1967

“I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I’m not afraid to look behind them.”
