"You know what I feel like? .... I feel all the time like a cat on a hot tin roof."
Elizabeth Taylor, the violet-eyed femme fatale whose smouldering talent and eight marriages made her a legend of Hollywood’s golden era, died yesterday, Wednesday, in Los Angeles. She was 79. The two-time Oscar winner suffered from congestive heart failure and had been hospitalized since February. Her death marks the passing of one of the last great stars from the old studio system ~ a devastating beauty whose personal dramas were as captivating as her performances in “Cleopatra” and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”!!
