Did You Know?
[on Tim Holt
, with whom he worked in The Magnificent Ambersons
(1942)] One of the most interesting actors that's ever been in American movies, and he decided to be just a cowboy actor. Made two or three important pictures in his career, but was very careful not to follow them up--went straight back to bread-and-butter Westerns... he was the most marvelous fellow to work with you can imagine.
CBS wanted him to host The Twilight Zone
(1959) but the producers felt that he requested too much money. He was ultimately ruled out in favor of the show's creator, Rod Serling
Frequently wrote, directed and starred in films that feature the rise and fall of main characters (Charles Foster Kane in Citizen Kane
(1941), Gregory Arkadin in _Confidential Report (1955)_, Detective Hank Quinlan in Touch of Evil
(1958)) who, in classic Shakespearean style, are unmade by their own vices.
