Night Iguana Two: The Belt

Picture 1

Belting Burton & Sexy Lyon

Another glance at Sue Lyon’s first scene in THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA starring Richard Burton as a beyond-troubled preacher who has more temptations than if he were in the Garden of Eden… And this lovely lass looks lucrative & luscious (notice the “L” theme?) but she’s young, and troublesome; much like LOLITA, the role that made Sue famous not long before… This is an example of typecasting for the good… On two counts: for as you can see, Burton’s character is taking a swig off a bottle… According to Lyon, Burton’s breath reeked of booze… This is obviously a prop bottle, but he sure sells it…
