    I'm impressed.

    RIP Liz.

    Edit: Make that three threads, 1 minute and two seconds apart.

    I am a bronze medalist at breaking already broken news.

    Can't imagine we'll ever see a celebrity like that again in the tabloid age. Hard to maintain that air of elegant mystery while being married eight times in a 24/7 world.

    In a perfect world, Liz Taylor would have married Billy Martin. Twice.

    Quickie obit:


    She was pretty much a caricature for the last 25-30 years of her life, but damn, she was great in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?".
  9. RIP, Liz

    On a side note, AP seems to have been taken by suprise by the news of the passing of a 79 year old in poor health for the past 10 years. Could ya get off your asses and file a complete story for the PMs of the world, please?!?

    Taylor was also a star in the first, true big-budget box office bomb, Cleopatra, for which she received the lavish salary (in 1963) of $1 million. A spectacle for sure that won four Academy Awards and was so overbudget that it became the first highest-grossing movie of the year to record a loss, $44 million, which wasn't chump change back then. She did that one with Richard Burton, husband number five and six.

    Taylor's affair with Burton on the set of Cleopatra was probably the biggest tabloid story EVER. If the entertainment-coverage media of today had existed back then, total meltdown would have ensued.
    Remarkably, although their eras coincided, Taylor is not known to have slept with JFK.

    Known as the most famous, sought after actress and most desirable, beautiful woman in the world at the peak of her career. A true movie star.

    And yet, I'm afraid the under 30 crowd will go "Who?"

    R.I.P. Liz.
