‘A Bridge Too Far’

Celebrity Q&A

My husband and I were watching the movie A Bridge Too Far. It had a very large cast. I think a young Richard Burton was in it, but my husband says no. Who's right?

Your husband wins this one. The 1977 movie classic, which depicted an ill-fated attempt during World War II by Allied soldiers to capture key bridges behind German lines, was jam-packed with an international cast of stars, including Sean Connery, Elliot Gould, Gene Hackman, Laurence Olivier, Robert Redford, Michael Caine, Dirk Bogarde, Anthony Hopkins, James Caan and Ryan O'Neal—but no Richard Burton, who, by the way, would have been in his early 50s at the time.
