Richard Burton   Leave a comment

Richard Burton, Welsh actor nominated for an Oscar many times but never won, had great charisma, and was dedicated to acting. Real life was so dull he took to drinking  “to burn up the flatness, the stale, empty, dull deadness that one feels when one goes offstage.”
