In From the Cold: The World of Richard Burton
Few great actors have been so unfairly represented in the public image as Richard Burton. Drunk, a wastrel, uncontrollable, unprofessional, besotted with glamour and wealth — these are just a few of the epithets describing the popular star of stage and screen. IN FROM THE COLD: A PORTRAIT OF RICHARD BURTON, a documentary made at his widow Sally Hay's request, is a celebration of an extraordinary man whose public image may have been seen as much different.
