    Elizabeth Taylor: Obits, Video Clips, Photo Galleries, Memories

    The Web lit up like a Christmas tree this morning with the sad but not unexpected news of Elizabeth Taylor's death of congestive heart failure in Los Angeles at age 79. Fifty-three years ago--almost to the day--Taylor escaped dying in a plane crash. The petite actress had been in failing health for many years. Taylor was fragile even back in 1993 when she attended Cannes to run the amfAR auction at the height of her AIDS activism. I'll never forget walking up the red carpet stairs of the Palais behind Sylvester Stallone as he advanced to meet Taylor, waiting for him at the top, wearing white and holding her beloved little white dog in her arms. As had always been the case throughout her 70-year career spanning 50 films, the media went wild around Taylor, who was so beautiful that folks tended not to remember what an accomplished actress she really was.

    Creating a Broadway musical is hard. But it's what Trey Parker has wanted to do since he was a kid attending classic Rogers & Hammerstein shows at Colorado's Evergreen Playhouse. In high school, he played the lead in all the musicals, and majored in music at the University of Colorado.

    11 Greatest Tennessee Williams Performances on Film

    Tennessee Williams, whose 100th birthday is this coming Saturday, is responsible for some of the greatest works of American culture.

His characters are some of the most dynamic ever to appear on the stage, and you can’t really overstate his influence on the theater. It’s no surprise, then, that his plays, adapted to film more frequently and artfully than any other major American playwright, have produced some of the most brilliant performances in cinematic history.
