The Last of the Hollywood Icons

Elizabeth Taylor passed away this morning.  She was the last in a line of Hollywood icons and remained a star, even when she hadn't made a film in years.  I used to love to imitate her in this movie.  There was a time in my youth when I fancied a career in acting, but that was a long time ago and a not very interesting story.  Anyway, watch at your own risk.  The clip is not obscene or repulsive or even frightening.  It's just a classic example of the Fifth Commandment getting shattered by someone's  words.  As for Taylor's seven husbands and eight marriages,  I'm in no position to judge, so I won't. I could never relate to her love of diamonds and glamour and her casual regard for marriage.   With her passing, I am reminded that all glory is fleeting, except for that which belongs to God.  May she rest in peace.


  1. She had quite a life. May she rest in peace.

  2. I must say she was really beautiful and classy. Of course I have no idea what she was really like, but I did admire her public persona. Of course having those seven husbands makes you wonder.
