Terrific! Think they’ve read every book there is!
What an extraordinary collection — my browser was grunting and groaning as it strained to open the page, so many pix are there.
I love the way that Burton looks so p.o.ed to be interrupted by some bloody photographer — now there’s a man who was really reading, not just posing for the camera!
Lol. Sorry about the number of images. It’s so difficult not to stop when I’m doing these collections. I agree! I love Burton’s image – speaks volumes.
Boy, oh boy. Burton did not want to be disturbed.
Love Duke relaxing in his natural habitat.
Peck in glasses. Be still my heart!
😀 Love how everyone’s noticing Burton’s scary stare.
LOVE this one big time – you are a keeper!
Is it true that the only things Richard Burton asked for in his divorces were his books?
