Personal Quote:

On his friendship with James Dean, "In those final days, racing was what he cared about most. I had been teaching him things like how to put a car in a four-wheel drift, but he had plenty of skill of his own. If he had lived he might have become a champion driver. We had a running joke, I'd call him Little Bastard and he'd call me Big Bastard. I never stop thinking of those memories."

Trivia:

Appeared in two consecutive Best Picture Oscar winning films: Patton (1970) and The French Connection (1971). See more »
