Excus-me, no sé hablar el inglés, pero soy una gran admiradora de Burt Lancaster desde los 7 años que lo conoci a través de las películas, ahora tengo 61 años, y no he dejado de admirarlo. Tengo 57 viedos de él, y 35 DVD. De jóvencita colecciono un sinfin de fotos, pero que luego mi madre me los tiró. Lloré desconsoladamente. Lamento no esté vivo, siempre tena esperanza de verlo, aunque sea viejecito.
