”Glaaaaadiator!” Or in other words, a very happy 74th birthday to Elizabeth Taylor.

Now before we all go dousing ourselves in White Diamonds and using the big day as an excuse to eat cake for lunch, whaddaya say we all share our favorite Liz Taylor roles? Uttering Maggie’s first word on The Simpsons? Shouting abuse at real-life spouse Richard Burton in her Oscar-winning turn in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Being an unabashed fan of the ponies, I’ve got to go with one of her earliest roles, in National Velvet. How about you, PopWatchers?
