The Spy who came in from the Cold (1965) Wikipedia - The Spy who came in from the Cold (1965)

 

This 1965 motion picture follows closely John Le Carré's novel of the same name. Richard Burton is superb as Leamas. You can see Burton at his best as an actor at the scene in the shop where he beats the shopkeeper, who is played by Bernard Lee. I imagine Burton would have liked all his parts to have given him such a long rein as that scene. Burton is meant to be playing Leamas, drunk, bitter and violent. Also present in the shop are a couple, and the woman observes Leamas picking a can of Italian food and starts speaking in Italian. Leamas replies in English thickly-accented with Irish. Burton enjoys the part so much that he snarls crisply instead of slurring his delivery and demeanor.

From The Richard Burton Diaries by Chris Williams: Burton's entry for 1965 July 07 describes the start of filming of The Spy who came in from the Cold (1965)

7 Thursday Went to Berman's at 10 and walked to Wardour Street afterwards with M. Ritt. We ‘kicked the script around a bit’ for about an hour. Talked to Oskar Werner on the phone. Sounds young and enthusiastic. Had lunch at Isow's with Ritt and Claire Bloom. She was nervous but was alright. For this relief much thanks. Met my good girl at London airport. Her face looks extremely bruised poor old dab. Nerves made me rather snappy partner and we went earliesh to bed after bangers and mash.

From The Richard Burton Diaries by Chris Williams: Burton's entry for 1965 July 13

13 Wednesday Battersea Park at 8.15 to rehearse with Michael Hordern. Very very cold and particularly so as I am totally immobile during the scene and Marty shot take after freezing take. Springer arrived with Hugh French. Also journalist called Palmer from AP. He didn't seem like a journalist at all. Perhaps he isn't. Hoped to have E for lunch but didn't. Ended work lunch time (in Six Bells, King's Road) went home met E in lobby with her dad and P. Sellers. Cis and Elfed arrived (cut Ivor dead at Paddington!) and had dinner. I had mine in bed. Cold very bad.
