Richard Burton & Elizabeth Taylor, New York City 1964
In April 1964, Richard Burton was playing Hamlet in a Broadway production, directed by John Gielgud, that holds the record for the longest run (136 performances) of the William Shakespeare masterpiece in Broadway history. Columbia Records would release an original Broadway cast recording (now long out-of-print) of the production that year and this rare Don Hunstein photograph of the proceedings captures an anything-but-melancholy Burton and his new wife, actress Elizabeth Taylor, sharing a moment of mirth in the studio a couple of weeks after their wedding.
