Personal Quote:

[on giving Kris Kristofferson his first star part in a film]: I knew his songs, but I had no idea he had such a commanding presence. I felt, if he could convey his own personality on film, he could be a star.

Son of screenwriter, William W. Norton and his first wife, Betty Conklin. Brother of Joan Norton and Sally Norton both of Los Angeles, California; Brother of adopted sister, Teresa Norton Wolverson, of Boston, Massachusetts from his father's second marriage to Eleanor Elias Norton of Santa Barbara, California.
