    Tip of the cap to an actor who played many enjoyable roles over the years. 103 seems like a pretty good run, and I'm sure he saw and did more than most of us will in that time.

    Great career, don’t recall (in my time) any scandals or crap like you hear about today’s crowd either. So many amazing acting credits and of course passed on his acting chops to his son!

    According to the obits he was (in)famous for hiring blacklisted screenwriters and actors in the late 50s/early 60s, but history caught up with him on that one. He had the benefit of coming up at a time when the press was more willing to turn a blind eye to affairs and the like, so who knows what all he got up to. But he did have that gleam in his eye that makes it hard to believe he was a total saint!

    Nothing major, but there was that acusation that he raped Natalie Wood when she was 15.
