Both!

RIP fair lady, she sure had enough tragedy and pain in her life

She lived a full life, she was one of the most beautiful of women when she was young and a good actress. RIP Liz.

::::::::::::

Yep, that was a great flik. While not one of her best, she did pretty good in Cleopatra. An amazing and tragic life story in many ways but she brought much enjoyment to the screen. RIP Liz. Her movies are her legacy for most of us.

“RIP fair lady, she sure had enough tragedy and pain in her life” She handled the adversity with grace and dignity. She was a beautiful person, inside and outside.

Battle is on between Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angelina Jolie to play Liz....My vote goes to Zeta-Jones.

I actually saw Liz in person many years ago. She was breathtakingly beautiful and her eyes really were violet, in the days before colored contacts.

RIP..

When Paul Newman turned down her advances, I always envisioned the entire heterosexual male portion of the audience enthusiastically volunteering their services. LOL

That’s a nice summary. She also kept her nose pretty much out of politics and “shut up and acted” or whatever, unlike so many of the morons today. And she was a good role model for Michael Jackson. (OK that was uncalled-for!)

RIP Liz.

She almost died of pneumonia during the filming of Cleopatra.

Many don’t know it, but that movie was originally conceived as a two-parter. Cleopatra and Julius Ceasar and Cleopatra and Mark Antony

(a blurb from the excerpts on the DVD)

I too, once saw her up close and personal, so stunning was she, all I could do was stammer. She said, I was cute and I completely melted into a puddle.

Angelina Jolie to play Liz..

Could you not wait for Liz's body to at least assume room temperature before suggesting this outrage?
Angelina? The tattooed hussy whose lips look like swamp buggy tires? Whose acting skills range from A to B? Play Liz? Wouldn't Angelina be better cast in an update of "Bride of Frankenstein?"

She was unbelievably beautiful, a wonderful lady and graceful.

Except in Butterfield 8. Actually even, she was stunning.

Beautiful woman. Unmatched eye color except by an alien race IMO.

You know that many folks think they will be reunited with their spouses in heaven? Won’t it be a little crowded on Liz’s cloud?.

Just wonderin’

Next time you watch Cleopatra, pay close attention to Hadrian’s Arch when she enters Rome. Yes, that is an Air Craft Carrier in the background. Cecil B. DeMille can move the Red Sea. But he can’t move the 7th Fleet.

Listen to this story.. My dad is a writer and did a story on Mike Todd.
They became friends and Todd asked my Dad to write his autobiography.
At the last minute, my Dad had to pull out because of other obligations.

When Todd died in that plane crash, there were a couple of other people on that flight with him... One of them was the guy who was writing his book. That would have been my dad and I would not have been born.
Weird, huh?

because he was a cowardly wife beater - so your point?

She just died - can you give it a rest?

RIP, Dame Elizabeth. You gave a lot. You suffered a lot - with great dignity and compassion for others.

And THANK YOU for all the great, top shelf entertainment.

Damn, she was captivating in that film, which is one of my favorites. There was just something about Tennessee Williams — and Elizabeth Taylor — that commanded your attention. I never could take my eyes off of her. RIP, Elizabeth.

Search function is fine - people just need to use it. And not search a headline verbatim - only one or two keywords are enough.

Jolie is so famous for these action movies that require little acting, that we forget how good she was in Changeling, Gia and Girl, Interrupted.
