Apparently Richard Burton  didn't like signing his autograph as he didn't like it and there are many variations. i have attached a photo of one that I had checked out by the Richard Burton Museum and Autografica  although a few people on here disputed its authenticity), so there is a lot  of discussion on the subject. I have also attached one sold with JSA approval, as you can see the 'd' of Richard is quite unusual. As for your copy I wouldnt like to cast an opinion, but at least you can compare some examples

I think the Hamlet photo is authentic - there are some leftovers from his early 1949 signatures to be seen.

Hi KaiMi 

I find him tricky since his signature did vary over the years (& in what state of sobriety he was in at a given signing, I'd imagine).

Here's one that looks like your photo in it's neatness.  I'd say if the source of yours seems trustworthy, it's a nice example.

It's fine. The photo is from The Spy Who Came in from the Cold from 1965. Signature perhaps a few years later. This is a sit down autograph.

Here is mine signed from the same film signed at about the same time under very different cirumstances (Scotch):
