Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Wendell Corey] He said he used to piss her [Barbara Stanwyck] off all the time because she is so meticulous. If her call was for ten, she would show up at 9:30. So he knew how bugged she got with him because he was always late. Even if he was there on time, he'd hover outside the stage door until it was one or two minutes past and then come onto the stage--just to get her goat! See more »

Trivia:

Best known by the public for his role as Lou Grant on Mary Tyler Moore (1970) and for his starring role on the spin-off of the title character in Lou Grant (1977). See more »
