Elizabeth Taylor in giant 1956
Born February 27, 1932 - March 23, 2011
Elizabeth Taylor one of my all time favorite actresses, passed away Thursday, March 23/11. She was a stylish glamourous women on and off the screen with a very big of heart. 
Not only was she a magnificent international film star but a great humanitarian
Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor was born in London on Feb. 27, 1932, the daughter of Francis Taylor, an art dealer, and the former Sara Sothern, an American stage actress.
Movie career: Her more than 50 movies included unforgettable portraits of innocence and of decadence, from the children's classic "National Velvet" to the sentimental family comedy "Father of the Bride." She won Oscars for "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and "Butterfield 8," and a special one for her humanitarian work.
One of my favorite movies, which she starred in, was Giant.  Elizabeth Taylor received top billing in Giant and plays an intelligent, compassionate, yet resolute woman who refuses to be a subordinate to men. This was the mid-1950s, and portrayals of independent women were extremely rare to come by in movies.
