Elizabeth Taylor – Her Characters Live On

Once a story becomes a movie, the characters’ images leave your imagination, and become the actors who bring them to life on the screen.  Elizabeth Taylor’s career gave her face to so many…

Hard to imagine these characters looking any other way:

  • Enid Bagnold’s Velvet Brown from National Velvet
  • Louisa May Alcott’s Amy in Little Women
  • Theodore Dreiser’s Angela Vickers from A Place in the Sun
  • Shakespeare’s Kate in A Taming of the Shrew
  • Ross Lockridge’s Susanna Drake in Raintree County
  • Edna Ferber’s Leslie Benedict in Giant

Elizabeth Taylor died today.

    • Elizabeth Taylor as John O’Hara’s Gloria Wandrous from his book Butterfield 8 – forgot that one – thanks.
