    Yes, *explosive* chemistry! The Letters of Richard Burton have just been published and from what I’ve seen of them, they’re well worth reading, in particular for the insight they provide into the complex, intelligent, acerbic Burton (such a pity about the booze) and the way he saw Taylor.
    Yet again, fine photos, Vickie! (I particularly like the last one)

    Ahhhh The Burton’s. I was so lucky to be alive and aware of that great drama from 1962 on. My 12 year old little self was at the magazine rack at Safeway almost every day during “Le Scandal!” just devouring every tidbit of news out of Rome about our modern day Antony and Cleopatra. They were Fabulous. And on a personal note, Elizabeth was very kind and generous to a certain 17 year old kid from Riverside. So Miss Vickie, as Mrs. Burton would have said …”Thank you luv!”

    It must have been a living hell to balance out passion, love, talent, the egos, the public’s voyeurism…

      And, I wonder… As an actor, what it’s like to portray another actor? Must be odd.
