How about this: a super-rare colour photograph of Richard Burton and James Coburn in their only film together – and it was never finished. Whatever happened to the footage from Jackpot is anyone’s guess, but the film collapsed in 1975 when financing fell apart. This scene shows Burton, as paralysed actor Reid Lawrence, in his hospital bed. Insurance investigator James Coburn is checking whether it’s all a scam. The nurse is Burton’s girlfriend at the time, Jeannie Bell. On the left is French composer Christoph.
