(VIDEO) WHY JOHN CULLUM LOVES RICHARD BURTON
Em, knowing how important Burton continues to be for John, gets John talking about him.
John says Burton was a "complex, intellectual," -- deeply devoted to reading books, "endlessly reading, studying," books as well as poetry.
Em remembers when she was on the road with her dance company -- how Richard, John, and actors gathered in their home after every show. She asks, "What did you guys do -- play games, do scenes, get involved with women or what?"
John says, "Well, we were drinking buddies..." and describes Richard's extraordinarily brilliant work with Elizabeth Taylor in the film "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"
