- Born Aldo DaRe
- Went to school at UC Berkeley
- Served in the Pacific Theater in World War II
- Aldo was married 3 times
- His best known films include: The Green Berets, Battle Cry, Miss Sadie Thompson, and Pat and Mike
- Aldo was the first choice for Montgomery Clift's Pvt. Prewitt in From Here to Eternity
- Aldo had his SAG card revoked in the 1980s for working in non-union films (the only roles he could get). It was the only way he could pay his health insurance. Kind of sad.
- Brad Pitt's character, Lt. Aldo Raine, in Inglorious Bastards (one of my all time favs) was inspired by Aldo Ray.
"Personally, I'd like to see my Alma Mater, California, go to the Rose Bowl"
Amanda's Comments - Total guy answer, but refreshingly, not a PR sounding answer
"Professionally, I want to play in a western and I want to travel. Maybe I could do both. In Three Stripes in the Sun, I went to Japan. I wouldn't mind seeing the world while I worked."
"It is my personal belief that every citizen should take a much more active interest in his local and national politics."
