Elizabeth Taylor, her with the irresistible violet eyes, is dead at 79 of congestive heart failure. Already, Hollywood seems a shade dimmer because of her passing.
For the younger generation who knows Liz Taylor more for her deep friendship with the late Michael Jackson, she was actually a very talented actress with a colorful career and an even more colorful personal life. With Oscar nominations and awards, seven husbands, and a trail of admirers all over the world, the word femme fatale must have been invented with her in mind.
She began her career at age 10, and her films like "Lassie Come Home" and "National Velvet" are still much-loved classics until today. She grew into a luminous beauty in "A Place in the Sun" and "Father of the Bride."
Elizabeth's love life has been well-publicized, but none more so than that with fellow actor Richard Burton. They were married and divorced a couple of times.
Hollywood will surely miss Elizabeth Taylor's star quality. She always dressed like a star, with her fabulous eyes, huge diamonds, and an unceasing love for life and never-ending quest for happiness.
