Elizabeth Taylor (Actress)

Updated Post on 23 March 2011

Elizabeth Taylor (Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor)
Born : 27 February 1932

I've just recevived the Elizabeth Taylor autograph today and I'm so eagar to do a post on this.
She is considered to be one of my earliest english movie idol.
The movie Cleopatra has the greatest impact on me.
I was...very young then, 8? 9? of age when I watched Cleopatra.
The mysterious place and the beautiful queen...captivated me.
The scenes of the movies left me great impression.
Just like the Lost Horizon which took me years to find the right film on video.
I can't remember the title of the movie, so I go around asking for Egypt queen movie.
Needless to say, most of the video stores don't know what I want and some ended up referring me to the documentary section!!!
Anyway, I've already found the Cleopatra on VCD many years ago.
It was listed under classic film.
Come to think of it, I've not watched it for about 8 years now.
Maybe it's time to re-watch the movie and enjoy in all over again.
I would also like to wish her to be in good health always!
