Manila, Philippines.

A tragic figure, who looked misplaced even here, on location for a movie, he was a dedicated artist, an original method actor, who lived his roles. Also, an accomplished painter, he could not give his paintings away when he was alive, but they are now sold at premium prices at art galleries in 4Star hotels in Manila. He did in 1964 after accidentally ingesting rat poison.

    He died June 1966 and not 1964. Hi Sheri Patterson, he was my father.
