The girl with the violet eyes

Growing up I used to love watching old movies. I loved nothing better than curling up and watching Bill Collins' Golden Years of Hollywood. I have so many good memories of being whisked away with James Stewart, Katharine Hepburn, Joan Fontaine, Bette Davis, Clarke Gable.

There was no one more beautiful though than Elizabeth Taylor. As a girl, I adored her in Jane EyreNational Velvet and Little Women. I wanted to be her in Giant. I was shocked by Suddenly, Last Summer.

I love reading about her intriguing personal life, many loves and the diamonds, oh my, the diamonds! So, I was saddened to awake to the news that she had passed away.

Farewell, Liz.
