"Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"
"He was marvelous at rehearsals. There was the true theatrical instinct. You only had to indicate. Scarcely even that." - John Gielgud on Burton.

He was once considered the heir to Olivier. His talent was unsurpassable. Whenever he stepped on stage everyone gave him the utmost respect. He was truly remarkable, and his love for Elizabeth Taylor donned him recognition, in several of their amazing films, like 1963's "Cleopatra" and 1966's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"

However there was something about Burton that cast even "La Liz" into the background. Movies, like "My Cousin Rachel" (1952), 1957's "Bitter Victory", "Look Back In Anger" (1959), and 1964's "Becket", truly show the prodigal charisma and talent of the lovely Mr. Burton.

Richard Burton Quotes...

“False friendship, like the ivy, decays and ruins the walls it embraces; but true friendship gives new life and animation to the object it supports.”

“Indeed he knows not how to know who knows not also how to un-know.”

“How strange are the tricks of memory, which, often hazy as a dream about the most important events of a man's life, religiously preserve the merest trifles.”

“I rather like my reputation, actually, that of a spoiled genius from the Welsh gutter, a drunk, a womanizer; it's rather an attractive image.”

“Conquer thyself, till thou has done this, thou art but a slave; for it is almost as well to be subjected to another's appetite as to thine own.”

With Clint Eastwood in WHERE EAGLES DARE (1969)
