Quotes from the news wire:
He was gay, which she didn’t know at first, he was trying to convey that to her in certain ways without coming right out. For example, he would bring in men that he was dating onto the set to meet her. In later years, Elizabeth would say that it was very obvious. But that didn’t stop this great friendship from forming. Elizabeth once said, ‘I told him things that I’ve never told anyone else and I never will. And he told me things that I will never tell anybody else.’ That’s just the kind of connection they had.
The car looked like an accordion, he was crumpled up inside and his face was completely destroyed. His nose and jaw were broken in several places. The car was still running and it was dangerous to get in. Because of the impact, the doors wouldn’t open. It was Elizabeth who pulled at the back door and managed to get in. He started choking and she actually stuck her fingers down his throat to pull out his broken teeth. Everyone at the scene said she literally saved his life.
His career suffered, his drug and alcohol levels took off. He became harder and harder to cast. His physical condition deteriorated to the point that no insurance company wanted to get involved. And no director wanted to hire him because he couldn’t get insured. But Elizabeth fought for him. She put her career on the line to make sure that he always got his chance to work. She became the most powerful person in Hollywood and she used her influence to make sure that Monty could still work.
Richard Burton said when she heard the news, she went into her room to be alone, he could hear the screams from the room. She was just devastated. She later told the press, ‘I lost my brother, my friend.’ And I think she truly did.
Through the years, only bits and pieces of their friendship were reported, after speaking to my sources, and doing the research, I felt a full exploration of that relationship was really necessary.
