i had forgotten to post this last excerpt.itīs very,very sad,but it somehow completes the whole epic burton saga...and he led an epic life,like one of these legends the celts passed from generation to generation.

iīm glad you liked the excerpts from the book,alicia and nel!!i love the behind the scenes pics you posted nel.thanks so much!!the night of the iguana is such a great film with actors who are giving some of their best performances not only richard burton but above all also ava garder.one of the best roles in her whole carreer imo.just tremendous the 2 of them,and not to forget kerr and sue lyon.i like the picture in which burton is smoking a cigarette while heīs strangled in this hammock and liz stands next to him.she probably felt great empathy for him and gave him the cigarette to console him in his unfortunate situation.
i īve read that liz taylor and burton were always supervising each other on their sets.whixch sometimes led to amsuing results..at least if one believes helmut bergerīs account.burton was thrown from the set of ash wednesday after several severe fits of jealosy and chronically bad temper and spend the rest of his time in the hotel room with a bottle of jack daniels....berger and liz got along well.when theyx once wanted to go to a new yearīs day party burton didnīt accompany them and was left alone once more with a bottle and a book..he hated nightclubs and parties.he later wrote an excuse to berger:"i am an anti-social,who generally loathes parties."there are really hilarious stories about the burtons and berger,but since the book is written in german thereīs probably no use in scanning and posting them.but i īll post an excerpt from ava garnderīs account of the shooting of the night of the iguana (ava gardner-ava-my stroy)


ava gardner had the greatest sense of humour



and again the lonely welsh warrior-steppenwolf,whom i love the most
july 1953 in wales.(source:richard burton by paul ferris,scanned by me)



his first hamlet at the old vic 1953 (same source)


as king arthur in camelot,1980



and from ebay:

"richard burton was the perfect man." (from the notebooks of marlene dietrich)
dr. faustus


where eagles dare


his library in celigny.i think if i could call this my own i wouldnīt leave my house at all


and again an excerpt from his notebooks in 1970, which gives quite a good insight into the "canīt live with or without you" relationship liz taylor and richard burton had...rather sad too



the woman in the blond wig in the background is liz taylor hiding from the paparazzi
