The Resume

    He was the first actor to win an Oscar for a Western, but he was afraid of horses.
    When he was a boy, he discovered a boy a block away who would eat worms and swallow flies for a penny. For one third of the profits, he exhibited him in a tent.
    His autograph is carved into his gravestone.
    He was divorced.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He was the highest paid film actor in 1936.
