Remembering Elizabeth Taylor

Liz Taylor died this morning at the age of 79.

My glowing memory of her was from the 1951 film, “A Place in the Sun” the story of a working-class young man who is entangled with two women; one who works in his wealthy uncle’s factory and the other a beautiful socialite. Taylor played the “society girl” Angela Vickers; opposite Montgomery Clift.

Her presence on the screen was alluring, one of the most beautiful women I’ve seen on film. It was the eyes, the most beautiful set of blue eyes, gazing right at you. It’s no wonder people loved her.

Sadly, her beauty on screen didn’t equate off screen. Broken marriages, alcoholism and ongoing health problems dominated her life. Despite her numerous problems that caused tabloid headlines, she still devoted her time to worthwhile causes, including AIDS/HIV, which took her friend, actor Rock Hudson.

But for me, Liz Taylor will always be remembered for her beauty…and those beautiful blue eyes.
