James Darren

  1. Warren Beatty, The Roman Spring  of Mrs Stone, 1961.   On the scratch card  for Vivien Leigh’s Rome gigolo, Paolo di L eo, in  Tennessee Williams’ favourite movie of his work (his sole novel, in fact) were… the Roman looking Darren, Frankie Avalon(!), John Cassavetes, Fabian, Ben Gazzara, George Hamilton, Jeffrey Hunter, and John  Saxon. Oh and Anthony Newley – more talented than any of them but also more Hackney than  Italiano.
