Elizabeth Taylor recently died. I know some of you have heard the name but have no idea of what she did or who she was. The ones that do know something about her should realize that we have lost a member of the ever shrinking world of people that were actors during the era of the studio system.
In case you don’t know, Elizabeth Taylor made a Ton of movies. She was in a version of Little Women, did a great performance as a woman who was just like a cat in the film Cat On a Hot Tin Roof. She was a prostitute in Butterfield 8 and Cleopatra in a movie called Cleopatra. These are just a sample of her work in films.
The following are examples that might appeal to a person who isn’t a mainstream film fan.
1. Reflections of A golden eye.
1. 2, Simple Ceremony. which I just discovered. This movie will definitely please anyone that’s not a mainstream film fan.
