Classic Links

More link love for Elizabeth Taylor. I’ve got media coverage fatigue, but there was a lot to say about this lady:

This has always been one of my favorite moments on The Simpsons. Apparently Taylor showed up at the studio dressed beautifully and carrying her little dog. She recorded the line quickly and left as elegantly as she had arrived.-- EW

I like the way David Thomson describes the love affair between Taylor and Burton-- The Guardian

This is a generous, and I think accurate assessment of Taylor’s career— Movie Morlocks/TCM

Taylor the activist— The Sheila Variations

A nice description of Taylor’s private funeral services— The Guardian

And the rest:

This is a fascinating tribute to Dirk Bogarde— The Guardian

More entertaining pre-code reviews from Acidemic-- Acidemic

These fan mail responses from classic stars are a hoot. So formal!— Immortal Ephemera

An interview with the authors of the new book Harlow in Hollywood-- The Kitty Packard Pictorial
