Noted for his silvery baritone voice, Welsh actor Richard Burton established himself as a legendary Shakespearean actor with his memorable performance of Hamlet in 1964. Burton's tumultuous marriage with fellow star Elizabeth Taylor kept him closely associated with the public and rarely out of the news throughout the 1960s and 70s.
