In Honor of Ms. Taylor

I don't know if any of you heard but Elizabeth Taylor died today.  Because I have a great love for classic movies I wanted to do a post on my favorite Elizabeth Taylor movies.  The best part about Elizabeth Taylor is that, yes, she was incredibly beautiful, but she could act!  She really could...which is why I think she was chosen for so many great roles! So here we go...

1) Elizabeth was the original bride in Father of the Bride.  So that's my number one pick.  Make sure you also see the sequel Father's Little Dividend, where Elizabeth as Kay has a baby. (This is one of my most favorite movies!)

2. The next one is Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.  This is a play written by Tennessee Williams about a troubled family in the south.  Elizabeth stars opposite Paul Newman.  This is a great movie with tons of layers, great acting!

3.  The last one I'll talk about is called A Place in the Sun.  Elizabeth is a young girl who falls in love with a man with one big secret.  Drama, of course, ensues.

These are just some of her movies that I have enjoyed but there are so much more!  Enjoy!

  1. Oh, Elizabeth Taylor, such beauty and talent! I remember reading that she was actually born with two sets of eyelashes for each eye, which is why even in her young acting days it looks like she's wearing false eye shadows. I always loved the movie National Velvet. I'm sure you've seen it, Meg. It's a great one! Thanks for this little tribute to Ms. Taylor. She truly is a film icon.

    Hope you, hubby, and baby-to-come are well!
