However, one Jamaican - Ernie Smatt - has more than just memories of Taylor lighting up the silver screen with her stunning beauty. Smatt, owner of Shaw Park Beach Hotel and Water Sports Enterprises in Ocho Rios, shared a close and long friendship with the Academy Award-winning screen goddess who visited Jamaica regularly.

"The lady had the most beautiful eyes that existed, she had violet eyes that were the most beautiful eyes I'd ever seen in any woman, they were the most beautiful creation... I think one of her main attractions and beauty were in her eyes," Smatt told the Sunday Observer in an interview last week.
Smatt, a former Observer Business Leader nominee, is saddened by the passing of his long-time friend, but said he was not very surprised when news of her death broke, especially since he knew she was sick.
"They loved Jamaica, both Elizabeth and her husband loved Jamaica, and they bought four lots on the waterfront in Mammee Bay," Smatt said.
We used to go there all the time to the movies and we used to choose to go out when there was a cowboy movie," Smatt told the Sunday Observer.
He said that in recent years, he didn't have much communication with Taylor, even though they kept in contact.
"I called her on a number occasions when she was sick and she never complained about anything. She said 'I'm fine', and I know at some time she was really sick," said Smatt.

"From the suave and debonair Tanny Shirley, the measured and incisive thinker Ian Levy, the introverted, hands-on and absorbed 'Zoukie' Marzouca, the calculating and prophetic Terence Jarrett, the effervescent and flamboyant Ernie Smatt or the dignified and much celebrated Eugennie 'Gloriana' Minto."
Smatt, the principal of Shaw Park Hotel and Water Sports Enterprises, agreed: "I thought Ryland Campbell was an excellent choice and I think he made a very dynamic speech," noted Smatt, the businessman who changed the face of attractions in Jamaica's tourism industry."He is very deserving of the award recipient, " said Smatt.
