[on the difficulties of being a tall actor] You ever see a picture called The Flying Missile
(1950)? I was in it, and Glenn Ford
starred. We were on a submarine, and I was looking out of the periscope all the time. Only it would look bad if we had to lower the periscope for Ford after I finished looking out of it. So I spent the whole picture crouched over.
There is some irony in Jerry Paris directing Henry Winkler
as "The Fonz" in Happy Days
(1974), Winkler's character deriving his style from Jerry and other Black Rebels Motorcycle Club members in The Wild One
Frequently appears in a small (often one scene) role
