America lost a real life movie star Wednesday when Elizabeth Taylor died at the age of 79 of congestive heart failure. Elizabeth Taylor was a star from her formative years, starring in forty years of films. Later in life she used her celebrity to draw attention to causes such as Aids. Orit Schwartz is the artistic director of Bend film: ”It is a sad day, but she had an amazing life, but she left behind her legacy.   An amazing body of work. Her humanitarian efforts for people who didn't have a voice. She spoke out and people listened to her because she was Elizabeth Taylor.” Elizabeth Taylor passed away at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, surrounded by her family.
