Elizabeth Taylor reported dead

Elizabeth Taylor.

You don’t really need to say more…everyone knew who she was.

Who that is may have changed some over time…from a child star in National Velvet and two Lassie movies, to the glamorous, oft-married Hollywood star, to Michael Jackson’s friend, to perfume designer, to her work with AIDS.

She didn’t do a lot of genre work: she’ll be known more for Giant, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, and Cleopatra.

She did do some, though…Doctor Faustus (with twice-husband Richard Burton), The Blue Bird, voices on Captain Planet and The Simpsons (and God, the Devil, and Bob), and the live action version of The Flintstones.

This is going to hit a lot of people as the end of an era, however, there are other stars from 1940s and 1950s (and certainly the 1960s, arguably her heyday) still with us.

But there are no more Elizabeth Taylors.

Good-bye, La Liz…as those famed violet eyes will meet ours no more, know that you will always be an eye-opener…not only for your talent, but for being who you are.
