She is perhaps one of the most phenomenal beauties that has ever graced the silver screen. Her jet black hair and alluring purple eyes were certainly a sight to behold.
Somehow she is intertwined with Vivien Leigh, replacing Vivien in Elephant walk after Vivien's mental illness could not sustain the shooting of the film. In fact, if you look at some clips in youtube.com you will find that there are far shots of Vivien still -- unable to reshoot again, they had to do with those sequences. These two could actually have been related by their features.
And perhaps so, Mattel's Elizabeth Taylor doll and Mattel Vivien Leigh as Scarlett are actually one and the same mold.
Both also played Southern Belles: Taylor in "Raintree County" and Vivien, of course as Scarlett and Blanche Dubois.
It was sad to hear news of her passing. Great beauties fade like roses.
This March, a month after her 79th birthday, Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor finally found a place where her beautiful spirit remains ageless!
May you rest in peace.
