Tom Tryon (1926-1991)

  1. John Gavin, Psycho, 1959.  Alfred Hitchcock’s potential TV-style heroes for the November  30,  1959 start of the low budget, “TV-style” Paramount movie No. 9401 also included Tryon, Brian Keith, Robert Loggia, Leslie Nielsen, Cliff Robertson, Rod Taylor, Stuart Whitman. Gavin won because, as  a Universal contractee, he was… the cheapest. Disappointed with him, Hitch called Gavin ”The Stiff.”Hardly news as he had made two Alfred Hitchcock Hourepisodes: Run For Doom, 1963, and Off Season, 1965.Hitch kept Rod Taylor for his next one: The Birds. "As always," laughed Rod, "I thought: What the fuck am I doing here?”
  2. Chuck Connors, Move Over Darling, 1962.     Tyron was to be the man stranded on a desert isle with Marilyn before she was fired, died and Something's Gotta Give went lite with Doris Day.
  3. Stuart Whitman, The Comancheros, 1961.    When John Wayne replaced the ill Gary Cooper as Texas Ranger Jake Cutter, his co-star was Heston. Biut he  passed the gamblin’ man, Paul Regret, to Tyron… who likewise split (for Disney’s Moon Piilot),  leaving the role (no longer as important as in the book) to Stuart Whitman… who would  take the lead in what came over as a re-make, Rio Conchos, 1964.  Steve Forrest, James Garner, John Gavin, Cafy Grant  and Robert Wagner had also been considered  for the gamblin’ man.
  4. Keir Dullea, Bunny Lake Is Missing, 1965.     Never happy in movies (certainly those made by the, er, over-bearing  producer-director Otto Preminger), he quit and  became a novelist.
