    Aw, that’s sweet that Elizabeth Taylor is the next one.

    (BTW, you got the wrong link for Emma’s post.)

  2. CS says:

    @MovieNut14 – Good catch on the linkage. The correction has been made.

    As for Taylor, I was originally planning to feature Greta Garbo next month. After the news broke about Taylor I figured it would be a fitting tribute.

  3. thevoid99 says:

    I just want to note that on April 10 for 24 hours, there will be a marathon of films starring Elizabeth Taylor on Turner Classic Movies.

    So set the DVRs for what movie you want to see from Liz.

    Second mention on the LAMB, WOOT WOOT!
