Elizabeth Taylor remembered: Mike Nichols
Mike Nichols made his feature directorial debut with 1966's classic "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" for which Elizabeth Taylor received her second best actress Oscar as the frumpy, vulgar Martha. Nichols remembered Taylor in a statement Wednesday morning:
"The shock of Elizabeth was not only her beauty. It was her generosity. Her giant laugh. Her vitality, whether tackling a complex scene on film or where we would all have dinner until dawn. She is singular and indelible on film and in our hearts."
