    I’m understanding this Dennis. And Richard Burton is The Man, second only to Lord Byron in my very humble opinion!

      It’s something of a cliche to observe that great minds think alike, Neil, but on this occasion, it is certainly true and I would expect you of all people to understand this post. Otherwise, I’m sure you’ll be pleased to learn that my daughter Tanith gave me as a Christmas present John le Carre’s recent autobiographical work The Pigeon Tunnel, which I’ve been reading as slowly as I can to prolong the pleasure. Last night, I came to the chapter where he writes of the late, great Richard Burton filming The Spy Who Came in from The Cold, with memories of working with and meeting with the great man and I went into sheer raptures about this. Only the likes of Byron and Blake can accurately speak of transports of delight like this, but that is my typically roundabout way of agreeing with you that Richard Burton was indeed The Man.
