    He had several absences from the screen and stage caused by nervous breakdowns.
    He had an unsuccessful stint as an MGM contract player in the early 50s: 'After a couple of years, I was anxious to go back to Italy and they were anxious to send me back.'
    Accompanying wife Shelley Winters to the Academy Awards, he was mistaken for her ex-fiancee, Farley Granger (1952).
    Winters said he had 'too much ham in his Hamlet.'
    He founded and ran a theater company, Teatro d'Arte Italiano.
    He was successful in dramas and comedies, noting 'The art of the comic is no less than that of the tragedian.'
    He won the award for best actor at the 1975 Cannes Film Festival for 'Scent of a Woman.'
    He did a popular bit on the Italian TV show 'Tunnel' in which he would recite, in his grandest theatrical style, phone book listings, utility bills and other mundane documents.
