Kenneth Haig

  1. Richard Burton, Look Back In Anger, 1958.         It was the Angry Young Man period… None more vociferous than playwright John Osborne’s creation of Jimmy Porter. The suits vetoed the stage star and won over Burton. He even cut his usual fee. (Never did that again!). At 33, he was way too old. Producer Harry Saltzman later admitted that Burton was “a monumental miscalculation. ” But that is why Saltzman did not make a similar error in 1962 with… Sean Connery as James Bond!
