1[on Susan Hayward] I learned a lot from that lady. I learned more about my trade, about presence in front of the camera, by watching her. She acted like it was nothing, with no effort.
#Fact
1The June 30, 1971, issue of Variety, in the Hollywood Production Pulse section, lists a movie "Everyman" directed by Jerry Schafer for Hollywood International Pictures with actors Rory Calhoun, Ruth Roman, Rosie Grier, Jim Mitchum, Tom Bosley, Jesse White, John Fiedler, and Percy Helton which started filming Jun 14, 1971, in Dallas. No evidence the movie was completed or released.
2Partners, with Victor M. Orsatti, in Rorvic Productions, a film production company.
3The July 22, 1970, issue of "Variety", in the Hollywood Production Pulse column, states that the movie "The Low Price of Fame" had started filming May 18 in Iowa, starring Calhoun, Gardner McKay and Yvonne De Carlo. Jerry Schafer was producer / director and executive producer was Donald B. Running, for Carvel Productions. There is no evidence the film was completed or released.
4Was a registered Republican who campaigned for Richard Nixon in 1968 and 1972.
5He and Vitina Marcus had a daughter, Athena Marcus Calhoun, who became "The World's Most Beautiful Showgirl" and was awarded "The Key to the City of Las Vegas" in 1987.
6Guy Madison was one of his closest friends. The two men often went on fishing and hunting trips. Guy and his (second) wife Sheila Connolly named him godfather to their first born Bridget.
7When he was nine months old his father died. After his mother remarried he occasionally used the last name of his stepfather, Durgin.
8His young criminal career was rather extensive. A high school dropout, he stole a revolver at age 13, which landed him in the California Youth Authority's Preston School of Industry reformatory at Ione, CA. He escaped while in the adjustment center (jail within the jail). After robbing several jewelry stores, he stole a car and drove it across state lines. This offense sent him to the federal penitentiary in Springfield, MO, for three years. When he finished his sentence he was incarcerated in San Quentin State Penitentiary in California on other charges and remained there until he was paroled just before his 21st birthday.
9After his release from San Quentin, Calhoun worked several odd jobs, including cowpuncher and lumberjack.
10In 1943, while horseback riding in the Hollywood Hills, he accidentally met actor Alan Ladd, whose wife Sue Carol was an agent. She landed him a one-line role in the Laurel and Hardy comedy short The Bullfighters (1945) under his name of "Frank McCown".
11Henry Willson, an agent known for a stable of young, attractive, marginally talented actors with unusual names (Rock Hudson, Tab Hunter) signed Rory to a contract and initially christened him "Troy Donahue", then changed it to "Rory Calhoun". He used the Troy Donahue name later on another up-and-coming actor, with excellent results.
12In 1955 his agent, Henry Willson, disclosed information about Calhoun's years in prison to "Confidential" magazine in exchange for the tabloid not printing an exposé about the secret homosexual life of Rock Hudson, another Willson client. The disclosure had no negative effect on Calhoun's career and only served to solidify his "bad boy" image.
13Second wife Sue Rhodes was a journalist.
14Calhoun's second cousin is popular Canadian sportscaster and talk show host Bob McCown (host of "Prime Time Sports" on the Fan 590 Radio and nationwide on Rogers Sportsnet).
15His daughters with Lita Baron are Cindy (b. 1957), Tami (b. 1958) and Lorri (b. 1961). His daughter with Sue Rhodes is Rory Patricia (b. 1971).
16When Lita Baron sued for divorce, she named 79 women with whom he had allegedly committed adultery. Calhoun responded, "Heck, she didn't even include half of them".
17As a teenager Calhoun dropped out of high school and drifted into petty crime, becoming a car thief. He was caught and spent three years in a federal reformatory. In the mid-'50s blackmailers threatened to make his prison record public; instead, Calhoun himself revealed it. He died after a ten-day hospitalization for advanced stages of emphysema and diabetes.
18Mentioned numerous times in the episode of The Simpsons (1989) where Mr. Burns steals the puppies from the Simpsons.
