Top Ten 1965

BIL'S BEST ACTOR

In the wake of the popularity of James Bond adventures, it was only a matter of time before the antidote to all that glitzy action and sex would come along…and John Le Carre did not miss the opportunity to provide it.  The Spy Who Came In From The Cold presents the work of spies as dour, depressing, lonely and dangerous, and Richard Burton is terrific as the agent who has been rendered soulless by his experiences. Burton was too expressive and commanding an actor to let the character go slack; watching him suffer the emptiness of his life is surprisingly captivating.
