    The news stated that the cemetery had been "poised" for protesters, but none materialized.

    I read that she also scheduled her limo to arrive 15 minutes after the service was to begin, in keeping with her tradition of arriving "fashionably late". Truly, a GRAND woman who had a final chuckle at her own funeral.

    People magazine has a HUGE spread on Miss Taylor. I never get mine before Friday but it arrived in the mail today. She takes up the whole cover, as well. The cover is gorgeous.

    Farley Granger was a good actor and very nice to look at, too. He's quite nice looking in the older man picture above, too. I also loved Strangers on a Train, through there were not too many Hitchcock movies I didn't like.

    Film director Sidney Lumet dies

    April 9th, 2011 02:09 PM ET

    Sidney Lumet, director of the classic films "12 Angry Men," "Dog Day Afternoon" and "Network," died early Saturday of lymphoma, his family said. He was 86.

    Lumet received Academy Award nominations for best director for all of those films, as well as "The Verdict," but never won one, according to the Internet Movie Database. He received a best-writing nomination for "Prince of the City." He was awarded an honorary Oscar in 2005.

    "While the goal of all movies is to entertain, the kind of film in which I believe goes one step further. It compels the spectator to examine one facet or another of his own conscience. It stimulates thought and sets the mental juices flowing," Lumet once wrote, according to The New York Times.

    Other notable films Lumet directed, according to imdb, include "Fail Safe," "The Group," "Murder on the Orient Express," "Serpico," "The Wiz," and "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead."

    Re: Rest In Peace.

    What a body of work that man had!!
    And to think that he was never even rewarded with an Oscar?!!
    Network and 12 Angry Men are probably 2 of the finest films ever made, IMO.
    How a director like Kevin Costner, or even James Cameron, can win for the **** they made and this man never did!
    Sorry, but it's just mind boggling to me!

    RIP, Mr. Lumet
