    He originally planned to be a bullfighter.
    Early in his career, he was typecast as a Latin lover.
    He appeared on stage only once, declaring the theater 'too much work.'
    On screen, he always wore a leather wristband, which had originally been prescribed by a doctor to help heal a tennis injury.
    When he was 74,he tried without success to interest the studios in making a biopic of Salvador Dali that he would star in.
    He began acting when he was picked at random to be an extra.
    He chose his screen name to honor his two favorite movie stars, John Gilbert and Ruth Roland.
    Bette Davis called him 'a smashingly beautiful guy.'
    He served in the US Army Air Force during World War II.
    He said, 'I don't have any delusions about myself as an actor. I'm grateful for being able to find enough work all these years.'
