Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[1982 regarding his acting career and his investments] I'm retired now. I've made all the money I want. So I just do what I feel like doing. If I act again, it has to be something meaningful. See more »

Trivia:

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 (1945), his voice was dubbed because the studio was unaware he was a trained singer. He later explained that he didn't correct their mistake because he felt the singer dubbing him probably needed the money. See more »
