Cliff Robertson

Date of Birth & Location: 9 September 1925 (USA).

Cliff: “I Think I do remember the producers making several phone calls ahead of time, saying, ‘ What kind of character would you like to play? ‘ I said it might be fun to play a very, very, very dumb cowboy, who took himself very, very seriously. Then they decided to do a takeoff of Shane. That is how they came up with the name Shame. I recall they kind of let me pick my own costume, and I did a lot of my own stunts.”
