Elizabeth Taylor Dies at 79
Without a doubt, one of the last true movie stars and one of the most beloved figures of the 20th Century -- a woman just as famous for her off-screen life as her on-screen projects -- died today. Elizabeth Taylor died from continuing congestive heart failure at the age of 79.
A two-time Oscar winner who made more than 50 films, she was easily the most famous woman in the world in her heyday. She brought a glamour and elegance to the screen that just isn't seen in contemporary film. The world may never see her like again. See full details on her passing here.
