Richard Burton recites Dylan Thomas' poem "A Child's Christmas in Wales" while walking in lower New York City, sitting in the kind of bar Thomas favored, looking at the Hudson river. Black and white film, moody, effectively handled by the young Burton, who introduces the reading by pointing out that like Thomas, he, too, is a Welshman.
