Remembering Elizabeth Taylor as Amy

I’m not normally into celebrities but I did shed a tear today when I found out Elizabeth Taylor had passed away. She had suffered a long time from a long list of ailments but she had an incredible spirit. Definitely larger than life. It seemed appropriate today to remember her performance as Amy in the 1949 version of Little Women. Even though I had a hard time getting past the blond wig, Taylor certainly brought plenty of attitude to that performance. :-) Liz could certainly do haughty (and nobody was more gorgeous, for sure!)

There’s a new star in the heavens tonight. RIP, Elizabeth Taylor.

    Was it a wig? I thought I read that she dyed her hair. Hmm. Interesting. Anyway, I never did like the hair color because it wasn’t very blonde. And the performance was decent, though I thought she was too old for Amy.

    Still, Liz was a rockin actress. She left us some great movies though!

      I bet you’re right about her hair being dyed blond. I just assumed it was a wig. Yeah, not blond enough but man, her hair was way too valuable to bleach! I bet Liz was the Amy we’d love to hate. :-)

  2. Oh, thanks for sharing this tribute….I haven’t seen this version of Little Women, but you’re right…Elizabeth could do haughty, which was definitely called for in the Amy character.
