Acting or the Real Thing?

Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor--or Dick and Liz, if you prefer--have to be one of the most recognizable couples in all of history. I happen to love them both. They had wonderful chemistry and had many obstacles in their lives together, but they also had many good times. I started out liking Liz, and not long after, I got interested in Richard. This page is dedicated to one half of that talented team. Although I adore Liz, I find Richard to be more picture perfect. So I've gathered several of my favourite photos from all over the web, along with my own scans and screen-grabs, and put them all here. If any of these are yours and you wish me not to use them, *please* let me know, as I don't want to steal anyone's personal collections. Feel free to eMail me about that or anything, including errors on my page, at I urge you to sign the Guest Book so I know people are visiting the site, and I will continue to make updates. Thanks, and have fun!

-Richard Burton Quotes-

Richard (about working with Liz): Well, I suppose I must don a breastplate once more to play opposite Miss T!ts.
Richard (about Liz): If anything happened to her, I'd die.
Richard (about love): Unless you love someone, nothing makes any sense.
Liz (about her relationship with Richard): It was probably the most chaotic time of my life. It was fun, and it was dark--oceans of tears, but there were some good times, too.
Joan Collins (about Richard's womanizing): Richard, I do believe you would screw a snake.
Richard (in response to Joan): It would have to be wearing a skirt, darling, and it would have to be a female snake.
Richard (about his profession): I'm strictly in Hollywood for the fame and money.
Richard (about being an actor): Actors are poor, abject, disagreeable, preverse, ill-minded, slightly malicious creatures. And of that august company of idiots, I'm afraid I'm a member.
Richard (about popularity changing him): I feel the same. I mean as I've always felt. That is, like me. I look the same. Except I've put on a bit of weight. That's French cooking for you.
McPhisto (from Candy): Go away! How dare you?! Are you suggesting, that a potential candidate for the Nobel Prize in literature, is not capable of taking off his own trousers?
