One of the most underrated actors of all time.

caesar78Jul 30, 2014

Burton je bio veliki glumac ali i velika pijanica. Da je imao mjeru u pi?u duže bi živio i ostvario još više uloga.

SantiagoAug 3, 2010

Hay que reconocer que fue con Burton, con quien Liz fue màs feliz, porque fue su eterno amor.

SeverianoJul 27, 2010

Por què será que Elizabeth Taylor no quiere que se filme una película, sobre sus amores con Burton.

MarcelaJun 23, 2010

Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor were the most beautiful couple, I love them.

AlecoJun 18, 2010

Ahora que todo el mundo comenta las cartas de amor de Burton a Liz, es un placer ver estas fotos de la pareja más espectacular del cine mundial.

MarceloJun 10, 2010

Liz y Burton sin la pareja más famosa del cine mundial y la demostración de lo que digo está en que han pasado cerca de 30 años de la muerte de Burton y se sigue hablando de ellos, sobre todo ahora que se están publicando las cartas de amor que Richard le envi{o a Liz.

LuisMay 19, 2010

Burton tuvo muchas mujeres, pero como Elizabeth Taylor ninguna, por algo es conocida como la reina de Hollywood .
