Ms. Taylor definitely made a splash with headlines for her wild-life behavior, but she was much more celebrated for simply being Elizabeth Taylor - sexy, glamorous, tempestuous, fragile, always trailing courtiers, media and fans. Ms. Taylor hasn't appeared in a film since the 1994 live-action adaptation of The Flintstones, but she's very much a name from Old Hollywood and the Golden Age of Cinema.
Ms. Taylor broke into the business at the young age of 10 in There's One Born Every Minute in 1942. From there her acting career took flight. Throughout her amazing career she appeared in numerous films including the original Father of the Bride, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Cleopatra (one of my personal favorites), and much more. But her biggest career achievement would come later and in the form of two Academy Award wins from her performances in Butterfield 8 and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? By then she had already been nominated three times previously, so it was only a matter of time before she finally went home with Oscar.
Elizabeth Taylor's has lived a tremendous life and her legend will definitely live on in film for eternity. Her passing today is truly a sad loss for Hollywood and for all her fans throughout generations.
