    Ferrer did such a bad job directing Ferrer that Joshua Logan had to be brought in to redirect the production.

    He is the only actor to receive an Oscar, Emmy and Tony nomination for the same role (Cyrano de Bergerac).

    He won the very first Tony Award for Best Actor, for 'Cyrano de Bergerac.'
    He got an Oscar nomination for his first film role (the Dauphin in 'Joan of Arc').
    He strapped his legs behind him to play Toulouse-Latrec in 'Moulin Rouge.'
