Liz and Dick.
Married, divorced, then married again and divorced once more, they were Hollywood’s greatest power couple since Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, Sr.
Paparazzi followed their every move. Their lavish lifestyle made headlines across the globe. Richard Burton, the son of an alcoholic Welsh miner, and Elizabeth Taylor, Hollywood’s greatest star, made the marriage of the century.
They met and fell in love on the set of Cleopatra. Of course, both were married. Burton to Sybil Williams, a down-to-earth Welsh woman, who tolerated Richard’s numerous affairs, confident that he would always return to her and their two daughters, Kate and Jessica. Welshmen did not abandon their family. That was understood.
