In 1944, he was drafted into the Royal Air Force. After his discharge, he had his first hit in 1949's The Lady's Not For Burning. He played the lead role in Hamlet in London's Old Vic Theatre and on Broadway, which was a long-running 1964 production. On the big screen, Burton received seven Oscar nominations, including six for Best Actor. While he never won an Oscar, his Best Actor nominations spanned a quarter of a century, demonstrating his acting ability over the years. His film roles include films like Where Eagles Dare (1968), Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984), and Equus (1977). He may be most remembered, however, for his long personal and professional relationship with Elizabeth Taylor. The two met on the set of Cleopatra (1963) and got married the next year; their star power dominated the set and the film's publicity. The two made eight films together, including Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf (1966) and The Taming of the Shrew (1967). They were married twice, but his chronic alcoholism later in life separated them. Burton maintained his stage career even after he became a hit in Hollywood. His many honors include three Tony Award nominations, eight Golden Globe nominations, and the aforementioned seven Academy Award nominations. Jane Griffiths (1929-1975) was an actress who appeared on various stages throughout England. She made her screen debut in 1937 and earned a recurring role on The Buccaneers (1956-1957). Other popular appearances include The Durant Affair (1962) and The Impersonator (1961). Holes punched along one side. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
