[after having received "permission" from Samuel Goldwyn
to get married] About a week before the wedding was planned I got a call from the casting director: "Let your hair and your beard grow. You're going to be in a western".

Trained as an opera singer, but was rarely, e.g. in The North Star
(1943), allowed to use his fine singing voice in the movies. In the one musical he did make, State Fair
