From a small mining village in Wales to Hollywood's silver screen, Richard Burton broke every rule in his quest for the American Dream. Burton was known for his charisma, his explosive temper, his excessive carousing, and, above all, his stunning command of stage and screen. 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. Twice married to Elizabeth Taylor, he is now revealed to have been one of Marilyn Monroe's secret lovers; in this, the first full-length biography, are details of his licit and illicit relationships with Hollywood's most iconic stars.--From publisher description.
