I loved Dame Elizabeth because she loved gays: Rock Hudson, Montgomery Clift (my favorite), Michael Jackson (not near my favorite) and (I think) Roddy McDowell to name a few of the best known. May she rest in peace. Granny :grannymede: mede

What ever happened to that archaic word "pr*bl*ms"?  I haven't seen it used in many a day.  That's why I typed it as if it is forbidden.  Is the dismissal of the word another sign of the wussification of America?  What does EOD say?

Taylor was truly a spectacular beauty. Such a shame she led such a troubled life when it came to men. She did love to be married, just not to the same man for a long time. :(

A true legend, a great actress and wonderful woman. She did more for the AIDS cause than any other single person or entity. She knew how to live and she did it right.

One of my favorite movies is Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. I never tire of it. I love the long scenes without any noticeable cuts. The sheer esoteric nature of George and Martha's relationship and how their need for each other manifested itself in such quirky ways that seemed almost obscene to an outsider. There are only a couple of scenes that let you, the viewer, in on the secret. Simply amazing writing. The fact that (and the reasons why) it was filmed in black and white when color had long been a standard at the time. Taylor actually put on weight for the movie to make her look older.

Here's a piece of trivia that involves the game Trivia Pursuit. Back when that game first came out I was playing with some friends and I got the question: Who where the only 4 cast members in the movie Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? I got voted the "gayest" person at the party because I not only knew all 4 names they were looking for, but I also knew that the question was in error; there are 6 people in the movie. Agnes & Frank Flanagan appeared as the bar owners when the foursome went "dancing." (Never knew if those 2 were married or what.)

When Taylor was selected for the movie no one was quite certain that she would be good enough to play the role as her earlier work had not been nearly as demanding. Well they found out.

You bet she was baby. You bet she was.

I love that movie, so powerful. But, I have always had a difficult time seeing ET such a mess both emotionally and physically as compared to most of her movies. She was alwys so beautifully put togehter. Another confession, I loved her in Father of the Bride and Father's Little Dividend. They were nonsense movies but light hearted and funny. She was so beautiful :)
