“She was unquestionably gorgeous. I can think of no other word to describe a combination of plentitude, frugality, abundance, tightness. She was lavish. She was a dark unyielding largesse. She was, in short, too bloody much.” —Richard Burton, Meeting Mrs. Jenkins (1966)

Mrs. Jenkins was Elizabeth Taylor.
