    He earned an engineering degree from Cornell and tutored mathematics there for six years.
    He was fluent in French, Spanish, German, and Yiddish.
    He took up acting after Lionel Barrymore told him, ‘With that face, you could make a fortune in the theater.’
    He considered getting a nose job to expand the types of roles he was offered, but United Artists took out an injunction to stop him.
