“I, along with the critics, have never taken myself very seriously.” — Elizabeth Taylor

It’s her birthday today.

I wrote a big piece on my Substack about National Velvet/A Place in the Sun/Suddenly Last Summer/Cat on a Hot Tin Roof/Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf and General Hospital. Naturally there is more to discuss – her career lasted a lifetime – but these cover what I am trying to express about her skill and powers of imagination. Natural talent takes you only so far. Beauty takes you only so far. Her imagination is connected to her skill.
