Sterling Hayden

Recommended Posts

montgomery4me, I too found the ending scenes in The Grifters amazing, but toooooo intense. I wasn't 'spoiled' when I first saw the movie and I'd have to look away now since I know what is coming.

 

By the way, I claimed Sterling Hayden as one of my hunks awhile ago here. :) I never knew he was a major **** until I saw him in his early movies, thank you TCM.

Thought this was a Jim Thompson thread..but I've got a great Sterling Hayden story too..

 

The movie that comes closest to the spirit of Thompson is "The Kill Off"..a little indie that's as down and dirty as it gets..

 

Now, to Sterling..a friend of mine was the producer of all the "Godfather" pictures and went to Sterling's boat to try to persuade him to take the part..the holdout? Hayden didn't want to cut off his ponytail!

 

Another great Hayden performance in a drab movie..."King of the Gypsies"

Thanks CJD----I will look out for those other titles you mentioned. He really was one-of-a-kind.
