      Do you know what I remember most about Camelot? The LP! And the great album cover… I bet you do too!

    She seems more at ease than he does. He looks like he’s looking for someone else 🙂

    I’ve never understood the Richard Burton craze. I like his acting, but I just don’t find him as hunky as some women do. That’s a hysterical quote from Ms. Andrews! Ha! She obviously had a firm grip on the backward magic of Hollywood… the worse your reputation, the more publicity you get.

    The photo was taken backstage on the opening night of Camelot. (I read that and saw the photo in her autobiography).
    Burton was not only supremely gifted as an actor, but he also had genuine charisma. Julie is priceless, a gem, and I appreciate her even more now than I did growing up.
