Best documentary of an actor
1 September 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is a must for Richard Burton fans. It will knock you out. You see Rich quite drunk reciting the alphabet but what emerges is the heroic Welsh hero who "beat the world". It is tragic in that he died so young but his achievement speaks for itself. Melvyn Bragg adds successfully to the notion of a great artist, son of Wales, gone the way of dusty death in the Dylan Thomas mold. His daughter is very giving in her assessment of her father. I have been searching for the DVD since it came out. I copied off a PBS broadcast on "Great Performances". It is, quite simply, the best documentary of an actor I have ever seen. It is fair to Rich. The crowd that believes that he squandered his talent do not know the extent of his work. His likes will not be seen again...
