Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor is gone and with her one of the great Hollywood faces. She was so beautiful in extreme close up which is what Hollywood is all about. Who cares about acting? It’s the thrill of being so close to so much beauty. Now we see motion picture theaters on the way out. Faces on tiny screens. Is there really anyone beautiful left in Hollywood except some of the men? I don’t want to see Glenn Close in close up. She always reminded me of Andrew Jackson. Farewell Elizabeth. Your kind of thrill will probably be missing in the 21st century.
