Trivia:

Always in high demand as an actor, he turned down the role played by William Holden in Sunset Blvd. (1950) and the part of James Dean's brother in East of Eden (1955). In 1955, alone, he passed on five Broadway plays, (among them Eugene O'Neill's "Desire Under the Elms"), and he turned down the films Désirée (1954), Friendly Persuasion (1956), Prince of Players (1955), Fahrenheit 451...
