Franco Zeffirelli reacts ... to Elizabeth Taylor's death

Zeffirelli and Taylor on the set of "Taming of the Shrew"
I was wondering when we would hear from Maestro Zeffirelli regarding the passing of Old-Hollywood icon and actress Elizabeth Taylor.

Well, Chickpeas... here it is. With his usual dramatic flare, Maestro Z. tells ANSA news agency:
"I am very sad. We have lost a memorable person who I was fortunate enough to know and work with on two films. People like Liz don't exist anymore... because fairy tales no longer exist. Liz Taylor was a winning combination of rare qualities. She was beautiful, intelligent... a woman who could also allow herself to marry eight times and have seven husbands in times very different to today."
The 88-year-old opera/film/etc. director's first film with Taylor was a version of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew in 1967 starring her and husband Richard Burton. Her second with Maestro Z. was Young Toscanini in 1988.
