Re: Elizabeth Taylor dies at 79

I see Martin Scorcese is going to make a movie about the tempestuous love affair between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
I saw the link when I saw a story about Richard Burton being allowed a Hollywood Walk of Fame star which is a little unusual posthumously.

I was listening to a BBC radio programme 'Desert Island Disks' the other week and the guest was the former British MP Baroness Shirley Williams (who I admire a great deal). Apparently when she was evacuated by her parents to the USA during WW2, Williams very nearly got the lead part in National Velvet, Elizabeth Taylor's part that shot her to stardom. Liz looked better on a horse apparently

As an aside the Desert Island Disks' archive is now available online to everyone. You can listen to a 40 minute interview of many of your favourite personalities including famous international people, not just Brits. They've been casting celebrities away since 1942!!
Check it out.
