[on Robert Ryan
] A disturbing mixture of anger and tenderness who had reached stardom by playing mostly brutal, neurotic roles that were at complete variance with his true nature.
One of his films as a producer was Julius Caesar
(1953), which was the first American film for John Gielgud
. Gielgud would later turn down the role for which Houseman won an Oscar, The Paper Chase
(1973). However, Gielgud did succeed Houseman in The Winds of War
(1983) sequel, _'War and Remembrance (1988)'.
