Personal Quote:

[on his regret at not appearing in the movie version of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958)] I know more about being a homosexual than Paul Newman.

Trivia:

Acquired the nickname of 'Bud' to distinguish himself from his father whom he disliked. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently played young, somewhat misunderstood rebels in his youth (A Streetcar Named Desire, The Wild One, On the Waterfront) and later powerful criminals (The Godfather, The Formula, The Freshman, The Score). See more »
