Camille (yet again!) knocks the 1950s and then touts the great screen icons Elizabeth Taylor, Lesie Caron, Natalie Wood and Kim Novak...all who came to prominence in...the 1950s.
That is a contradiction, and I don't think she thought it out.
But a case could be made that Taylor, Wood, and Novak were the last gasp of old Hollywood. When Connie Francis and Sandra Dee came on the scene that Hollywood was dead or dying.
It doesn't quite work, though, because Debbie Reynolds was about the same age as Liz Taylor or Kim Novak, and Doris Day was older, while Natalie Wood was younger.
Camille doesn't always function on a rational level, though ...

Both Elizabeth Taylor and Wood became superstars in the 1960s - don't forget “Cleopatra” and “West Side Story.” Taylor's incredibly high salary last through the early 70s. While Taylor was a fine child actress in the 1940s, she didn't become an adult star until “A Place in the Sun.” Wood, as well was a child actress who made her bones as an adult (or teenager) in “Rebel Without a Cause.” Her career sustained itself throughout the 60s.
I agree that Camille didn't think that theory out too well. I'm amazed she cares enough to even know who Taylor Swift is.
