What about bourgon? I would think that bourgon would play a role in some of those parties.

My God. What a woman she was. I can't even say I would have given her the most disappointing 30 seconds of her life. For a woman like that, you suffer with the jaw pain and count yourself a lucky man.

shiat. Thought it was Richard Burton the explorer and got all jazzed.

Still would have hit Liz back in the day.

"Her breasts were apocalyptic," he later boomed. "They would topple empires before they withered." --- Richard Burton

"She is a wildly exciting love-mistress, she is shy and witty, she is nobody's fool, she is a brilliant actress, she is beautiful beyond the dreams of pornography... she is an ache in the stomach when she is away from me... and I'll love her till I die." --- Richard Burton

"Bewitched. Bewitched by her coont and her cunning." ~ Richard Burton (on the power Elizabeth Taylor had over him)

[on Elizabeth Taylor] I love her, not for her breasts, her buttocks or her knees but for her mind. It is inscrutable. She is like a poem. ~ Richard Burton

"The breasts, despite their largeness and considerable weight, sag very slightly but no more than they did 10 years ago. Her bottom is firm and round. She needs weight off her stomach."

A picture = 1000 words

They're not "secret" subby; everyone knew he kept a diary and his widow has given a number of biographers access to them, starting with Melvyn Brag in the late 1980s.

My biggest take-away from them was that Liz could match Dickie drink-for-drink.

The woman's name is/was Lee Evans. She was a dancer/model. The photograph in question was taken in 1940 (when Liz Taylor was all of 8 years of age). The photo was appropriated from the tome Classic Nude Photography: Techniques and Images and intentionally mislabeled as Liz Taylor as an Internet-wide April Fool's Day joke. One that has far outlived whatever meager humorousness it might once have originally held.

As a former English major I appreciate the man's poetic phrasing. Probably would have written a great novel or two if he had gotten around to it.
/and if the booze hadn't gotten the best of him
//apocalyptic boobies are apocalyptic!

If Richard Burton had written a novel, it probably would've been so powerful and so passionate, that we'd be erecting marble monuments to it.

"At 34 she is an extremely beautiful woman, lavishly endowed by nature with a few flaws in the masterpiece: She has an insipid double chin, her legs are too short and she has a slight potbelly. She has a wonderful bosom, though." - Richard Burton

"I might run from her for a thousand years and she is still my baby child. Our love is so furious that we burn each other out." - Richard Burton

"The most astonishingly self-contained, pulchritudinous, remote, removed, inaccessible woman I had ever seen." - Richard Burton

"Elizabeth has great worries about becoming a cripple because her feet sometimes have no feeling in them. She asked if I would stop loving her if she had to spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair. I told her that I didn`t care if her legs, bum and bosoms fell off and her teeth turned yellow. And she went bald. I love that woman so much sometimes that I cannot believe my luck. She has given me so much." - Richard Burton
