Personal Quote:

They teach you to succeed, but you're unprepared for failure. You're led to expect fame, but no one tells you about the rejection waiting at the end of the trip. Something fantastic had been given to me, then taken away, leaving a big hollow place at the center of my 12-year-old life.


Even though Billy Wilder usually avoided working with child and teen actors as much as possible, he did not hesitate to cast a very young Tom Nolan in The Seven Year Itch (1955) and Kiss Me, Stupid (1964). See more »
