Twitterers Quote Liz Taylor

Twitter is ablaze today in the wake of learning of the sudden death of 79-year-old legendary Hollywood beauty, Elizabeth Taylor. Yes, there is a smattering of disrespectful tweeters who think they are cute, although they are unaware of their own loss by never having seen a Liz Taylor movie.

But by and large, Twitter is paying its respects to the London born violet-eyed goddess of the silver screen.

Our own favorite Liz Taylor quote is in the movie “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” when Richard Burton calls to her up the stairs and she brays back: “Whaddya want?”  Here is a clip from “Virginia Woolf” where as Martha, Liz does a Bette Davis impression of Bette’s famous line from “Beyond the Forest” — “What a dump.”
