The death of Elizabeth Taylor brings about the end of an era of true Hollywood icons. National Velvet is, and always will be one of my most favorite movies. Just a girl when it was filmed, before she became a motion picture siren, when Hollywood had true glamor and mystique. All of those things are gone and now, and she is too...but she will never be forgotten. I'd sooner have that horse happy than go to heaven." -- Velvet Brown in NATIONAL VELVET.
