Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[about Elvis Presley's reaction to Davis' song "Don't Cry Daddy"] "Don't Cry Daddy" is a pretty sad song. He got to the end of it and it was just real quiet and Elvis says, "I'm gonna cut that someday for my daddy". And, by God, he did. He lived up to his word. See more »


A co-starring role opposite Jackie Gleason and Karl Malden in 1983's disastrous The Sting II effectively ended seriously slowed the momentum of his film career, though he continued to work in smaller projects and made-for-TV movies into the 2010s. See more »
