Viral Video: RIP Elizabeth Taylor

Of all the many entertainers in Hollywood, none was more authentically a star than screen legend Elizabeth Taylor.

Ailing in recent years, it’s too easy to forget what a global sensation she was, in the days well before celebrities had the Internet and other digital means to become well known.

She was buried today at Forest Lawn, of course. Sigh.
