Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

When I was a kid, I fell in love with Spencer Tracy in "Captains Courageous." That, to me, was the ideal. A good man, a brave man. What I would want to be. I'm still in love with that. See more »

Trivia:

Crane was basically bankrupt during the mid- to late-1970's and, shortly after his murder, his estate would come into millions of dollars from a new syndication deal for Hogan's Heroes (1965), which he owned a small part of. See more »
