ABC report, Thursday March 24, 2011 : Hollywood legend and violet-eyed beauty Elizabeth Taylor, famed as much for her glamorous but stormy love life as her five-decade Oscar-winning film career, has died aged 79.
"There is no questioning the monumental impact that Elizabeth Taylor has had on film and on pop culture, but today I find myself celebrating the life of a woman who used her unparalleled fame to combat HIV/AIDS at a time when those suffering from the disease were being ignored because of the stigma attached, which made Elizabeth Taylor fight even harder. It is that courage and determination that has continued to inspire new generations of fans that span every imaginable background. She was a true survivor who lived to the fullest with both passion and purpose.”
— Andrew Budgell (a fan & author of this endearing online tribute www.dameelizabethtaylor.com)
I happened to record the movie Little Women on Foxtel IQ, just out of the blue, the other day but little did I know, Elizabeth Taylor herself starred in the 1949 rendition of this classic film! Watch the black & white trailer here.
Cute as a blonde. And what a cute kitten!
So ladies & gents, we must press on with passion & with purpose! Thanks Elizabeth.
