From the depths of a small mining village in Wales to a star of Hollywood's silver screen, Richard Burton broke every rule in his quest for the American Dream. Burton made sure that he sipped the cup of life at its fullest. Twice married to Elizabeth Taylor, he is now revealed to have been one of Marilyn Monroe's secret lovers. The details of these licit and illicit relationships with Hollywood's most iconic stars will titillate and shock both newcomers to Burton's story and those already familiar with his fame. Munn's biography covers everything from Burton's early days on the London stage, to his star performance in Broadway's Camelot, to his wild nights in Hollywood with the likes of Errol Flynn, Peter O'Toole, and Frank Sinatra. Burton was known for his charisma, his explosive temper, his excessive carousing, and, above all, his stunning command of stage and screen. This first-ever look at the real Richard Burton is a must-read for any follower of film, history, and the rise of celebrity in America.
