Dylan Thomas only wrote one play and this is the first and only screen adaptation of that world famous Welsh classic. The original play has been presented in nearly every country in the world, and on celluloid it remains by turn moving, funny, beautiful and completely timeless - a kaleidoscope of all human life. Richard Burton fulfilled a life long ambition to appear in this screen version, playing a role which his friend wrote especially for him.
It's a delightful if peculiar story of a day in the life of a small, Welsh fishing village called "Llareggub" (read it backwards). We meet a host of curious characters (and ghosts) through the 'eyes' of Blind Captain Cat (O'Toole).
