Personal Quote:

[about Neville Brand, with whom he worked on a TV adaptation of "All The King's Men"] Neville Brand was a good actor, but what he's famous for is that he was blacklisted at Universal. He was a drunk and he pissed on a tour bus filled with tourists. He didn't work at Universal after that. See more »

Nephew of Joseph L. Mankiewicz. See more »
