            Personal Quote:

            I can see the difficulties of making a movie. Directors and producers have to put up with a lot of rubbish from temperamental actors. See more »


            Harris did not enjoy his first time in Hollywood making The Wreck of the Mary Deare (1959). Production had to be halted several times due to the frequent illnesses of star Gary Cooper. Harris turned down the role of Commodus in The Fall of the Roman Empire (1964) and was 34 when he starred in his first Hollywood movie, Major Dundee (1965). See more »
