He was a little before my time, but I've seen his films and read about the circumstances surrounding his murder. Did he identify as gay or bi? His IMDB profile has him in a long-term relationship with his Exodus co-star Jill Haworth? Was she a beard, or was he authentically bi? If he had lived, do you think he'd have gone the route of many of his fellow actors at the time and done the gone through the Love Boat/Murder, She Wrote, Matlock mill? Would he have come out as gay late in life like Richard Chamberlain or Tab Hunter? It's sad to think that he might've even contracted HIV. What are your thoughts on this good actor who died way too soon?
