What Can You Say About a Legend?

A more appropriate question has perhaps never been asked about Elizabeth Taylor.
Eight marriages, violet eyes, and “White Diamonds” aside, the woman was a humanitarian, mother, and film icon in the way they don’t make film icons anymore.  It goes without saying that the world is a sadder and (might I add) less glamorous place without her.
While I attempt to formulate something in the way of a passable literary tribute to Ms. Taylor in time for TCM’s 24-hour marathon of her films on Sunday April 10th (beginning at 6 am ET/PT), here’s what Paul Newman (who is also missed) had to say when he was asked to speak about his dear friend, Elizabeth, for the channel a few years back:

Rest in peace, Dame Elizabeth.  You were one hell of a woman.
