Richard Burton, CBE (; born Richard Walter Jenkins Jr.; 10 November 1925 – 5 August 1984) was a Welsh actor. Noted for his mellifluous baritone voice, Burton established himself as a formidable Shakespearean actor in the 1950s, and he gave a memorable performance of Hamlet in 1964. He was called "the natural successor to Olivier" by critic and dramaturge Kenneth Tynan. A heavy drinker, Burton's purported failure to live up to those expectations disappointed some critics and colleagues and added to his image as a great performer who had wasted his talent; he is nevertheless widely regarded as one of the most acclaimed actors of his generation.

One of the most underrated actors of all time.

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