Personal Quote:

"Here's a midget part", [producers] say. "Mike's available". Then they soft-soap me about what a great [actor] I am. I don't want to play Charlton Heston parts, but there are a lot of roles I can do.


Chondrodystrophy (i.e. cartilage maldevelopment) that defined Dunn's physiology refers to a skeletal condition caused by one of myriad genetic reasons that can affect the cartilage resulting thus a form of dwarfism. See more »
