The Untamable Shrew

It's not her most revered performance, and it's not the one that we immediately turn to as an encapsulation of her legend. But, when I think of Elizabeth Taylor I immediately think of the shrewish Kate from Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. It's not my favourite performance of hers, but I think of I still think of it as her peak, she's never been more beautiful, more tenacious and more fiery. And, I can't help but think of her eternally opposite Burton - who she stars with here.
RIP Liz Taylor: 1932-2011

Today I was thinking of the younger Liz... in National Velvet and Little Women. An amazing, long career. Requiem in pace.
