Description And God Created Richard de Tom Rubython:

"Believe me, you will never have read anything quite like this The Spectator London With Richard Burton, I was living my own fabulous and passionate fantasy. Everyone bought tickets to watch Liz and Dick, and we gave them what they wanted. Elizabeth Taylor In all honesty, had he turned his considerable charms on me early in rehearsals, I do not know what my reaction would have been. He was that attractive. Julie Andrews If there were twelve elephants on a stage, you would look at Rich. Richard Harris They say best men are molded out of faults. And, for the most, become much more the better for being a little bad. William Shakespeare I came to dread the moment before dawn when Richard had to dress and go back to his wife. Claire Bloom In 1951, at the age of 26, an unknown British actor was signed by Richard Zanuck of 20th Century Fox on a three film deal worth $250,000. Very quickly, Richard Burton became Fox s biggest star, culminating in the 1953 blockbuster The Robe, where he out acted and outshone Victor Mature. Zanuck doubled his salary to $500,000 and Burton never looked back, eventually starring in the most expensive film ever made at the time, Cleopatra, and then marrying the world s biggest female star of the time, Elizabeth Taylor. Three times he was the toast of New York on the Broadway stage with performances in Camelot, Hamlet, and Equus, even today never bested for the box office takings or sheer strength of performance. This is the story of Richard Burton, a sweeping saga spanning 1898 to 1984, a story more exciting than any novel about the most charismatic actor that ever walked the stage. Stretching from the coal mines of South Wales to the film sets of Hollywood, this far reaching 800-page biography reflects the entire life of one of the greatest Anglo-Americans of our time. In the process, he became as rich as Croesus- the first actor to be paid a million dollars a film, he outbid even Aristotle Onassis to buy the world s greatest diamonds. He loved and lost some of the world s most beautiful women, including Elizabeth Taylor, Raquel Welch, Susan Stasberg and Claire Bloom. Reputedly bedding over 2,000 women, he was a lothario on a scale only equaled since by Warren Beatty. The book also reflects on his fatal flaws and how he spent almost every day of his adult life intoxicated with alcohol. He was the last of the hell raisers, a pack of actors that included Lee Marvin, Peter O Toole, Oliver Reed and Richard Harris. Supplemented by 64 pages of stunning photographs, many of which are published here for the first time." Tom Rubython is a well-known journalist and author, previously specializing in the twin worlds of business and sport. And God Created Burton is his debut book in the world of entertainment and the arts. Previously editor of well-known business and sports magazines, he has scored twin success in books with the best-selling biographies of racing drivers Ayrton Senna and, latterly, James Hunt. The idea for the Richard Burton biography came from his research into Burton s third wife, who had previously been married to James Hunt. He believed that there was much more of a story to be told than had been previously. Sir Roger Moore co-starred with Richard Burton in one of his most successful big screen appearances, The Wild Geese in 1978. Like Burton, he is an English actor and best known for three career-defining roles: as Simon Templar in the TV series The Saint in the sixties- as Lord Brett Sinclair in the TV series The Persuaders in the seventies- and most famously, as James Bond in the 007 films in the eighties. His career mimicked Burton s, stretching from 1945 and he is still in demand today at the age of 84 as a character actor. His long career has earned him millions of dollars and made him the best known English actor alive today. Robert Hardy was an original contemporary of Richard Burton right from the earliest days of his acting career at Oxford University, to wartime service in the Royal Air Force, to the earliest forays in London and Stratford-upon-Avon, to his death. His big break came in 1959 appearing opposite Laurence Olivier in 1959, in Coriolanus in Stratford. It won him a major part in the TV series of the day, the BBC s Troubleshooters in the late sixties. From then, he didn t look back and was never off television and the stage until he won the lead role in the BBC s classic series All Creatures Great and Small in 1978. The series ran for 12 years. But, for many, his finest role was as Sir Winston Churchill in the miniseries The Wilderness Years in 1981."
