    Who`s Afraid of Virginia Woolf favorite!

    • G.R.

      Mine, too.

      I’ve never seen ‘Butterfield 8′ — I may finally check that out…

      • True Blue

        Really riveting film, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Steph

    Aw no Cleopatra? I suppose it would be too long.

    I’ve always wanted to see Raintree County and Virginia Woolf.

    Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is an absolute favorite of mine. I had to see it for a film class like two years ago and I must have seen it over a dozen times already. Giant, of course, is amazing. And National Velvet! I saw that on tv some years ago when I was younger.

    Elizabeth Taylor will forever be a Hollywood icon and legend. She had what a lot of today’s actresses lack.
    Talent.

    • True Blue

      Talent and class, so few of today’s actresses have those qualities.

    • jan

      didnt see elephant walk listed – think she did that one with richard burton

      • terri

        No….Richard Burton wasn’t in that movie with her. I saw it when I was very young and he wasn’t in it.

  • Judy

    Who’s afraid of VW 10 pm 4/10 TCM
    Raintree County 2:45 pm
    Butterfield 8 8 pm

  • LOL

    People close to death themselves can enjoy one last fling with Liz.

  • Nance

    Oh, yeah, now I remember why I pay for cable!

  • Kathy

    Liz was the last of the Great Icons.
    Butterfield 8 & The Sandpiper,my favorite’s.

  • Toots

    Now I do feel really old. I grew up wathcing Liz in the movies. As a young girl, I had to have a dark summer tan, because after seeing Liz on the movie magazine covers, she looked so lovely with the raven hair & lavendar eyes. Like everyone, there were good things & bad things about her. Who of us could say, if we had her beauty, fame, money, upbringing & powerful rich men at her door, wouldn’t have done the same? She loved her kids, was a loyal friend & helped with AIDs – Not too shabby.

  • carol

    What? No ‘Place in the Sun’?

    • MB

      Exactly.

  • Devfan

    I loved Elizabeth Taylor. I saw many of her movies if not all. I was so excited when she was going to be a guest star on General Hospital. I thought that was so cool. She was an amazing beautiful, talented actress. A icon.. There will never be another one like her. She will be missed. My thoughts go out to her family, friends, and her so many fans.

  • Fran

    What about Suddenly Last Summer?
    And of course a Place in the Sun

  • Norma Jenkins

    Elizabeth Taylor was beautiful in a film that I like – “Elephant Walk” (1954)and I would like to see it again.

  • Ruth Mitchell

    My favorite Elizabeth Taylor movie is A Place in the Sun. Luckily I have the video. Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor were at their best. Movie should not be ignored.

  • jan

    maybe u can email tcm and see if they will add more – sure some other channels may run her movies too – u will have to ck listings

  • Tower

    I’ve seen all of the movies listed…but how could TCM forget about “X,Y and Z” ??? That movies was waaaay ahead of its time. And Liz played the HECK outta her character. “X, Y and Z” has very strong moral issues..not for the weak-minded ppl. You gotta watch it…all the way to the end.

  • Tower

    Maybe TCM omitted “X,Y and Z” because of the moral content but it’s MILD compared to the dominant themes of today’s movies.
