American Original: Sterling Hayden (1916-1986).

Actor, leading man, self-re-inventor, spy, war hero, searcher, sailor, rebel, real man, gifted writer and eccentric's eccentric, all six foot five of him. Authentic: not contrived, posed, phony or obliged to be different. Not ever sucking up. A pure lover of being alive. Read his biography, artful screed and best work, in "Wanderer" (1977).
