Elizabeth Taylor 1932 - 2011
How she captured what it is to love a horse in National Velvet. I'll never forget watching it, sitting on a braided rug in a small room at some friend of my mother's, staring up at a little television set, thrilled beyond measure. She became one of the first icons of my childhood, and I followed her from then on. Years later, A Place in the Sun defined for me what love could be, might be, tragedy and all. What a marvel she was.
