Two articles written by Richard Burton attacking Churchill, one entitled "To Know Him is to Hate Him", caused great offense in the UK and the US when they were published in November 1974 before his program was broadcast. Burton's younger brother Graham Jenkins contended they were in poor taste after playing Churchill in a favorable light with considerable help from the wartime leader's family. It lead to the blacklisting of Richard Burton from British TV drama for the rest of his life. See more »
Made for television in 1974 but non the less rather well-made and supported by great actors. Richard Burton stars as Sir Winston Churchill in this epic which spans the pre-war years of 1936-40. Following Churchill from being both ignored and ridiculed to the point where he is asked to lead the British nation, The gathering storm is interesting, fascinating and a great document of history. Richard Burton gives a powerful and fully believable performance, one of his better in the 1970s. 6/10
