RIP, Elizabeth Taylor

Posted By on Wed, Mar 23, 2011 at 11:05 AM

Elizabeth Taylor died at the age of 79 in Los Angeles this morning.

Probably the best tribute that can be offered to Taylor is to look back on an outstanding film career, which TCM is doing on April 10th. The schedule, includes a stretch from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof to Giant which is about as good as film gets.:
