Richard Burton was a regal, commanding presence of the 1960's cinema. Although some critics say he wasted his considerable talents, some of his films, like "Beckett," "Equus," and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?", are enduring testaments to Richard Burton's powerful dramatic skills and wonderful Welsh accented voice.

Burton's defining role was as a fallen priest in "Night of the Iguana", opposite screen beauty Ava Gardner. Other notable films include: "Cleopatra" and "The Longest Day."

Richard Burton was married to fellow super star Elizabeth Taylor. MORE
