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.
