Elizabeth Taylor – Dead at Age 79

Television is reporting the death of Elizabeth Taylor from congestive heart failure at age 79. Immediately, I thought of her many film roles. Do you have a favorite Elizabeth Taylor movie? In my classroom, I regularly used “The Taming of the Shrew,” in which she portrayed Katharina to Richard Burton’s Petruchio. However, I can remember many others, which I loved. Taylor was stunning as Leslie Benedict in “Giant,” playing a woman loved by both Rock Hudson and James Dean. She was also brilliant as Martha in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” as Maggie Pollitt in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” as Susanna Drake in “Raintree Country,” and as Gloria Wandrous in “Butterfield 8.”
