Ryan Davies in Under Milk Wood

Under Milk Wood

1972 PG

Welsh poet Dylan Thomas's radio play comes to life in this delightful adaptation vibrantly narrated by fellow Welshman and Thomas devotee Richard Burton and co-starring Glynis Johns and Burton's then-wife, Elizabeth Taylor. The film takes viewers into the lives of a seaside town's eccentric denizens via the character of Capt. Cat (Peter O'Toole), a silver-tongued seaman who knows the village intimately despite his rapidly failing eyesight.
