  6. Do You Know Me?

    Yes. Having read his autobiography recently, I found out that he made a lot of his movies for the money, not getting much satisfaction from them, because they were so much alike, playing gangsters. He was proud of Dr. Ehrlich, Cincinnati Kid, House of Strangers, All My Sons and Five Star Final, along with a few others. Movies like Double Indemnity, Key Largo, Vines Have Tender Grapes were mentioned very briefly. He also spoke of his rocky first marriage, his troubled relationship with his son and his unfortunate dealings with the HUAC. An interesting read of a versatile actor. Your turn.
  7. Do You Know Me?

    "I made about a hundred films, but my heart belonged to the theatre. I never understood the mass appeal of the film that catapulted me into an overnight movie star. In fact, I played the same type of character in many of my films. I liked the films that were actually about something. I was praised for my performance in a 1940 biopic by his family. I am most proud of that film. I loved art and had amassed quite a collection, despite the fact I has to sell some to distribute the assets equally for a divorce. Ironically, art was significant in some of my films. I badly wanted some affirmation for my life's work. Acting isn't just showing up. When I was in the hospital, I heard from one of my closest friends that I was being honored by the Oscars, but sadly it wasn't to be that I could stand up there and thank them all."
