Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton

"Liz and Dick." It was a match made in heaven -- or hell -- hard to tell. They fought, drank, loved, and threw furniture across three continents -- a titanic struggle. Elizabeth Taylor stole Eddie Fisher from Debbie Reynolds and chewed him up for a light snack before lunch -- what a tigress!

But she met her match in Richard Burton, the bellowing, brawling Welshman. She could not out-drink, out-talk, out-act, or out-fight him, and she loved him more than anything.

And it was the death of both of them.
