Richard Burton's Greatest Scene
Richard Burton's greatest scene was, in my humble opinion, played out at the Westbury Hotel bar in Toronto, Canada in 1978, with no cameras rolling and no witnesses save the customers in the bar and the man he was enjoying the evening with. Fortunately for us, the man with Richard Burton in that bar is a Canadian director and screenwriter that I have the honor of knowing and exchanging email with from time to time, Rex Bromfield, a long time friend of Richard Burton. One evening Mr. Burton wanted to kick back with Rex Bromfield and relax with a couple of adult beverages in a local bar, an 'out of the way' place where they might not be hassled by fans. It seems that it was not uncommon for men to try to pick a fight with Mr. Burton, probably to impress the women who were mooning over him. Rex thought that this was 'weird,' but sure enough, as they were enjoying the evening a well-dressed drunk staggered over to their table and exclaimed in a loud voice, "You're not such a big man." He made fists and said, "Come on, let's go."
Richard Burton and Rex Bromfield stood up and Rex quickly moved between the two men to protect Burton, but Burton pushed Bromfield gently aside and faced his would-be attacker. I now quote Rex Bromfield's note to me about this incident: "Richard pushed me gently aside and went into a performance that floored me and everyone else in the place. It wasn't long but it was brilliant. Instead of belittling the guy, Richard flattered him in such a back handed way that it went right over his head and connected with everyone else in the room. It was a thing to behold. Just like something out of the movies, only better. He'd obviously confronted this situation many times before. I think the traffic down in the street even stopped. The guy was amazing. It was a sad day at the airport when he left. Richard Burton was a great man, even more so in real life than on the screen - and that's saying something."
In this two part made for television story we watch Richard Burton as Martin Reynolds, a busy businessman who is in a struggling marriage with his wife, played by his real wife at the time, Elizabeth Taylor. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
