Elizabeth Taylor died on Wednesday.

She was sensuality personified.  Her talent, her roles and her men all made her a legend in Hollywood and the world over.

I've been trying to think of my favorite film of hers, and there are more than plenty to choose from.  I'm going to go with "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof."

She was brilliant in the role.  Sensual. Sultry. Needy. Greedy. Fascinating. Vulgar.  I loved it.  Of course, Paul Newman wasn't bad either.

Jane Russell Dies

She may have been regarded as Marilyn Monroe's other half in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,"  but Jane Russell was a sultry, sensual, full-figured goddess in her own right.

Jane was discovered by Howard Hughes and starred in his movie, "Outlaw."  From there, Hollywood was her playground.  Jane played opposite many handsome leading men.  Unfortunately, at 30, she retired as she felt that the best roles were only going to young actresses. No matter. Jane was not forgotten, and she continues to be the embodiment of sexy.

RIP, Jane.  (Say hi to Marilyn.)

RIP, Jane.
