James Agee on Elizabeth Taylor

"Frankly I doubt I am qualified to arrive at any sensible assessment of Miss Elizabeth Taylor. Ever since I first saw the child, two or three years ago, in I forget what minor role in what movie, I have been choked with the peculiar sort of adoration I might have felt if we were both in the same grade in primary school. She strikes me . . .if I may resort to conservative statement, as being rapturously beautiful."
                       - James Agee in his review of National Velvet
