From The Richard Burton Diaries by Chris Williams:

It was August of 1971 and the Burtons are back on their yacht Kalizma Link - MV Kalizma moored of Villfranche-sur-Mer.

 

1971-JUL Thursday 5th, Villefranche Have been back since Tuesday. [Monte] Carlo a nuisance as usual so nipped over here for a slice of quiet. Michael Caine on board from his rented yacht a veritable tub that bobs like a cork.56 He has a nice girl with him called Suzy Kendall who is married and presumably separated from her husband who is a comedian called Dudley Moore.57 Michael speaks in a shout which becomes a bit hard in a small room. He is very funny and very cockney most of his wit being a regular and repeated pattern of catch-phrases. Black as your hat, A turkish religion with a tip-up seat etc. All repeated at various times during the day. Spends his time going to discotheques and parties of which, down here, there are hundreds. Many good reports of XYZ from all kinds of sources so E might have a big one again. [...]
